Being a child of the 80's I grew up with Olivia Newton-John rollerskating her heart out in the movie Xanadu. Yes, it's not the best movie ever, but it's campy and fun. It was also the last film my hero Gene Kelly starred in. Check out Gene on roller skates.
Last weekend, I saw the play Xanadu. It was part off our Broadway play season tickets. I must admit, I wasn't terribly excited to see this musical. It's not a show I would have actively sought out to see, but I was pleasantly surprised with the production. It was fun. The humor was great and the rollerskating was exciting. I had a great time! The only negative is that for some of the bigger musical numbers the sound was a bit painful. The music was too loud and you could barely hear the singers. All in all, I would recommend this play to anyone.
