The Broadway musical based upon the 1980s movie with Olivia Newton-John. Playing at the Helen Hayes Theater, Xanadu tells the story of an artist (Sonny Malone) who is saved by a Greek muse (Clio/Kira) who appears out of the chalk mural he is creating. Together, they create great art: a roller disco named Xanadu. The OBC stars Cheyenne Jackson, Kerry Butler, Jackie Hoffman, Mary Testa, and Tony Roberts, to name a few.
