Xanaduis surprisingly cheeky, full of jokes and has an edge of witty irony. This production, featuring a vibrant cast of mixed ages and talents, has been skillfully brought together by Director Julie Paice. There is never a dull moment.
It is based on the 1980s film that was a box office flop but the memorable soundtrack was understandably a big success with songs such as ‘Magic’, ‘Suddenly’ and ‘Xanadu’ that were performed by Olivia Newton-John and The Electric Light Orchestra.
