Yes, it’s me posting this contest but really, ScottC is the Xanadu fan around here. And hey, I can relate. I was a Xanadu movie fan as well. When I was eight.
Anyway, because the Law of Relative Development is now expanding to include the stage, Xanadu opened on Broadway last July. And we’ve got a copy of the original cast soundtrack to give away.
“Look what I tripped over backstage…
I didn’t know Starlight Express had played at the Helen Hayes Theatre!”
Here’s what they have to say for themselves…
The first smash hit of the 2007-2008 Broadway season turned out to be one of the biggest surprises in Broadway history: Xanadu, which roller-skated its way into the hearts of critics and audiences alike. A hilariously reinvented send-up of the 1980’s Olivia Newton-John film flop, this irreverent musical adventure, about following your dreams when others say you shouldn’t, spins along to the addictive original hit film score by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar. Xanadu follows the beautiful Greek muse Kira as she visits Venice Beach, CA in 1980 to induce an uninspired artist, Sonny, to build the first roller disco (yes!). When she accidentally falls in love with him, much to her jealous sister muses’ dismay, chaos and fun abound, skate wheels turn and disco balls twirl. The updated script by Douglas Carter Beane takes the plot and dialogue to knee-slapping extremes, while the legendary chart-topping tunes get a musical theatre makeover via a stellar company of performers. This original Broadway cast recording will keep Xanadu in your head, and heart, forever.
