Sorry for the late notice, but thought you might still want to know that Xanadu, the glitzy, schmam-fest on roller skates is closing Sunday, October 12th. Based on the cheesy '80s movie of the same name, this new musical embraced the challenge of making something endearing out of something that lacked utter substance. And it was wildly successful in its endeavors. Xanadu was nominated for Best New Musical at the 2008 Tony Awards and won the Best New Musical award from the Outer Critics Circle. It was also well-received by critics and fans.
If you like sparkly musical theatre with a bit of self-aware mocking, see Xanadu while you still can. If you don't want to pay full price and you're 25 or under, take advantage of the student rush and get up to 2 tickets for $26.50, 2 hours prior to each performance, cash only. Or you can sit on stage for $41.50 no matter how old you are.
