Arts Daily / Xanadu


The Broadway smash hit Xanadu roller-skated its way into the hearts of theater critics and audiences alike. A lighthearted spoof of the 80s film, Xanadu spins along to chart-topping tunes from Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) and Olivia Newton John including “Magic,” “All Over the World,” “Suddenly,” “Evil Woman,” “Strange Magic,” “Have You Never Been Mellow,” and “Xanadu,” to name a few. Xanadu follows the beautiful Greek muse Kira as she tries to coax an uninspired Venice Beach artist, Sonny, to build the first roller disco. When she accidentally falls in love with him, chaos and fun abound, skate wheels turn and disco balls twirl. June 24th through July 26th at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina. 8pm Tues-Sat; no show July 4; special performance July 6; 2pm on Sundays.
