In Xanadu does Mosman’s show
A zany fun-filled night decree.
This affectionate stage musical send-up turns cult classic Xanadu, regularly rated amongst the worst movie musicals ever made, into a laugh-filled romp.
Seen the movie? That may well broaden your smile. Lived through the disco era? That will certainly tickle a funny bone or two. But this production feels like an all-round crowd-pleaser.
Mosman’s production is a cute, cheeky, high-camp disco frolic.
