STAGE TUBE: 'XANADU' Tour Featured on NBC Chicago

Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to present Broadway's surprise hit musical XANADU at Chicago's Drury Lane Theatre Water Tower Place beginning Friday, January 16, 2009. The press opening is Wednesday, January 28, 2009. Individual and group tickets are currently on sale for this fabulously fun, out-of-this-world musical confection.

This wildly funny musical delivers a surprisingly touching story about the nine magical muse-daughters of Zeus, who come to earth in 1980 (disguised in roller skates, leg warmers and Australian accents) to inspire humans to create truly great work and discover the meaning of the universe's greatest secret: the Gift of XANADU. Zeus' most important decree is they can't fall in love with any mortals! But all that changes when the young Kira (Elizabeth Stanley) meets the handsome artist Sonny (Max von Essen), who needs her help in achieving his greatest dream. It is only when Sonny teaches Kira the true meaning of inspiration, that the secret of XANADU is revealed!

XANADU stars Sharon Wilkins and Joanna Glushak as the evil Muses "Melpomene" and "Calliope" and Larry Marshal as "Danny" (played in the film version by Gene Kelly). The cast also includes Tallia Brinson, Amy Goldberger, Vince Rodriguez III, Jason Michael Snow, Kristofer Stock, JB Wing and Chicagoland-natives Julius Thomas III and Tiffany Topol.

XANADU performances begin January 16, 2009. Ticket prices are $25 to $87.50 and may be purchased at the Drury Lane Theatre Water Tower Place Box Office (175 E. Chestnut St.); any Broadway In Chicago Box Offices (24 W. Randolph St., 151 W. Randolph St., and 18 W.
