About Xanadu the Musical
Here is the trailer of the original ’80s movie – Xanadu.
The Story of Xanadu the Musical (source: Wikipedia)
Xanadu is a musical comedy with a book by Douglas Carter Beane, music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, based on the 1980 cult classic film of the same name which was, in turn, inspired by the 1947 Rita Hayworth film Down to Earth. The title is a reference to the poem, Kubla Khan, or A Vision in a Dream. A Fragment, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Xanadu is the name of the Chinese province where Kubla establishes his pleasure garden in the poem.
The story of the musical focuses on a Greek muse, Clio, who descends from Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest creation of his life – a roller disco. But, when Clio, disguised as an Australian roller girl named Kira, falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and Clio risks eternal banishment to the underworld.
The musical opened on Broadway in 2007 and ran for over 500 performances. It earned an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical and a Drama Desk Award for Best Book.

Life in the 80’s contest! Congratulations to:
***It was July 6, 1985 when my twin sister Dyra and I were born. I’m not sure if this picture was taken in 1985 or early 1986. I can’t remember anything (of course), but my life back then was growing up with that one person who I can literally and figuratively call “my other half”. My parents and the whole family keep on telling us stories (up to this very day) on how we put a smile on their faces from the moment we were born. Life was very simple then. What makes 80’s special? It was the time when we were born and up to this very moment, Dyra and I are still together…living happily:)
Live an Awesome Life,
Disclosure: We are marketing partners with the Sept. 4 showbuyers.
P.S. This will be my last post for the week. I’ll be resting until the weekend because my boys and I got sick. 🙁
