The special performance will be presented at 6 PM on the Main Floor of Macy's Herald Square. Following the performance, the cast will be on hand to sign autographs.

A pair of tickets to the hit musical at the Helen Hayes Theatre will be given to those who purchase $100 worth of fine jewelry, watches, fragrances or cosmetics (there is a limited number of tickets available).

Macy's Herald Square is located in Manhattan at Broadway and 34th Street.

Directed by Christopher Ashley, Xanadu features choreography by Dan Knechtges and musical direction and arrangements by Eric Stern. The design team includes David Gallo (scenic design), Howell Binkley (lighting design), David Zinn (costume design), T. Richard Fitzgerald and Carl Casella (sound design), Zachary Borovay (projections design) and Charles LePoint (wig and hair design). John Miller is music coordinator.

Xanadu boasts a book by Little Dog Laughed playwright Douglas Carter Beane — a 2007 Tony Award nominee — and utilizes songs from John Farrar and Jeff Lynne's film soundtrack. The musical, according to press notes, "tells the story of one of the nine muses of ancient Greece who comes to earth to inspire the greatest of artistic achievements – a roller disco. Along the way she falls in love, bumps into an old acquaintance and for the first time, feels the desire to create herself."
