Weathervane Playhouse travels back to the 1980s to open its 79th season with the roller-skating musical adventure "Xanadu," which can be seen through Sept. 22.
"Xanadu" follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980. She's on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time - the first roller disco.
But when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds.
This musical comedy rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, and includes such hits as "Magic," "All Over the World," "Suddenly," "I'm Alive," "Evil Woman," "Have You Never Been Mellow?" and "Xanadu."
Weathervane Playhouse's production of Xanadu is directed and choreographed by Gwen Arment with musical direction by John Ebner.
