Xanadu is set to run June 29 – July 22 at Playhouse on the Square.
Based on the cult film, a Greek muse descends from the heavens to 1980s Venice Beach, California to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to create the greatest entertainment achievement- a Roller Disco! The muse falls in love with the mortal, and her jealous sisters plot to bring them down. An electrifying musical tale about following your dreams with chart-topping tunes.
