XANADU, the hilarious roller-skating musical adventure, hailed as “the most fun you’ll have on Broadway” (The New Yorker), returns in a national tour with some fierce new twists! XANADU follows the beautiful Greek muse Kira, as she journeys from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, circa 1980, on a quest to inspire scrappy artist-on-the-rise Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! But when Kira stumbles into forbidden love with Sonny, a mere mortal, her salty sisters (RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Ginger Minj and Jinkx Monsoon) take matters into their own hands.

Based on the 1980 cult film starring Olivia Newton-John, the Tony Award®-nominated musical features a book by Douglas Carter Beane and an original hit score by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne (Electric Light Orchestra) and John Farrar. This production will be directed by Alan Souza and choreographed by Maxx Reed. XANADU is a crowd-pleasing, feel-good bop of a Technicolor musical that has audiences jumping out of their seats in tongue-popping bliss! “If you can’t beat ’em, slap on some roller skates and join ’em” (The New York Times).

XANADU has a limited number of VIP Experiences for each performance so be sure to act fast! Included are premium seats (it's like you're AT the roller disco!) as well as a post-show photo experience with at least one of the queens. You'll roll away with memories of the most FABULOUS night of your life!

“Heaven on wheels, and in leg warmers.”
The New York Times

“Stunning - more fun on stage! I laughed more than anybody else.”
