The Xanadu Broadway Reunion Concert
September 17, 2018
Here is the musical comedy event the gods have been waiting for! Before many of your favorite Broadway and TV stars were stars, they were in togas and roller skates shaking their groove things on Broadway. For one night only, Xanadu‘s Jeff Lynne (ELO) and John Farrar score will be recreated in all its glory, and book writer Douglas Carter Beane will weave the evening together with risqué and witty banter. Relive it all: the laughter, the tears, the glow sticks! The adult survivors of Xanadu will be bringing back life as seen in a mirror ball; and there are sure to be surprises. Zeus wouldn’t have it any other way!!
Featuring Original Broadway Cast Members:
Jacob ben Widmar (Broadway Replacement)
Elizabeth Stanley (1st National Tour)
