Xanadu by Douglas Carter Bean, Jeff Lynne and John Farrar

Slow Burn Theatre Co. Presents

Music and Lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar
Book by Douglas Carter Beane
June 22 – July 1

As the song states “A place where nobody dared to go….” is right up our alley. We are proud to present the South Florida premier of “Xanadu ” This surprise broadway smash hit won over even the toughest critics and theatre goers. XANADU follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO!. This hilarious musical adventure includes the hit songs “Magic”, “Suddenly”, and of course “Xanadu”. This tale of endless fun will keep you in stitches, while the legendary chart-topping tunes will lift you out of your seat. You’ll want to keep the music in your head, and XANADU in your heart, forever.

I truly love that show. I grew up with my dad going on and on about how good Frankie was and I'm so glad he did. I too have searched endlessly for a biography of sorts for them, but never found anything worthwhile.

As for Jersey Boys, I have seen it in San Francisco while tickets were cheap.. and London and both were amazing nights.
