X is for Xanadu


Source: Pinterest.
Originally opened on Broadway July 10, 2007.

Currently: Touring the U.S., I think. I'm not really sure about this particular site's reliability.

Music & Lyrics: Jeff Lynne and John Farrar

Book: Douglas Carter Beane

Basis: 1980 film Xanadu

Everybody knows about: Roller skates! 80s! Greek gods!

I have thoughts: Okay, so I obviously chose this one because there aren't that many musicals that begin with X. However, now that I've read the synopsis and see how much the stage version pulls from mythology, I'm really intrigued. Think I'll give the soundtrack a listen.
