According to Signature, "It is 1980 in Venice, California. Legwarmers are in and roller skates are way sexy. Kira, one of seven quirky Greek muses, is sworn to three things: to inspire mortals, never reveal her identity and never, ever fall in love. When she emboldens struggling artist Sonny to create the first roller disco, Kira feels the artistic pull of her own."
In addition to Brady, Weaver, Winter, Edelen and Payton, the piece also features also features Mark Chandler, Jamie Eacker, Kellee Knighten Hough and Nickolas Vaughan.
