With a book by Douglas Carter Beane and music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, the production will be directed by Paul Warwick Griffin and designed by Morgan Large, with choreography by Nathan M. Wright and sound by Richard Brooker.
The film starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly.
Kira, the magical and beautiful Greek muse, descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus for Venice Beach, CA, on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first roller disco. But when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds. Xanadu features the chart-topping songs from the film, including "Magic," "Suddenly," "I’m Alive," "Evil Woman," "All Over the World” and, of course, the title track "Xanadu."
Casting is still to be announced.
