Oh my, do I have memories of Xanadu! Like Kim's birthday party where we rented the movie and watched it while eating popcorn. I guess you had to be there. I'm sure you have your own Xanadu memories, of Oliva Newton John. After the silver screen (or should I say the TV screen), it became a Broadway musical. And now it's coming to the Retrodome. Take the kids! Or get a babysitter and relive your youth on a date.
If you somehow missed this cult classic, it's about a Greek goddess on roller skates in the 1980s. You'll get to hear 11 songs from the movie, including my favorites Xanadu (title track), and You Have to Believe We are Magic (both of which I can still sing). Tunes sung by ELO and Olivia herself. Awesome!
The show is 90 minutes without intermission (i.e. there is no intermission).
