Photo Flash: First Look at DOMA Theatre Company's XANADU

Fall head over heels in love with a rollicking Broadway parody starring Greek goddesses on roller skates. DOMA Theatre Company goes retro with Xanadu, the musical based on the 1980 cult film. The show opens tonight, September 7, and runs through October 7, 2012. Get a first look at the production in the photos below!

The year is 1980 in Venice, CA and legwarmers and roller skates are, like, totally awesome! In this ingenious send-up of the Olivia Newton-John/Gene Kelly film (which in turn was based on RitaHayworth’s 1947 film, Down to Earth), Greek muse Clio descends from Mt. Olympus to help struggling artist Sonny Malone achieve his dream of opening a roller disco. But there’s trouble in Olympian paradise when, disguised as Australian roller girl Kira, Clio falls in forbidden love with the mortal Sonny and risks eternal banishment to the underworld by her jealous and conniving sisters.
 
A hilarious, roller-skating musical phenomenon about following your dreams and believing in magic, Xanadu spins to an original hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar with classic feel-good songs like “Magic,” “All Over the World,” “Suddenly,” “I’m Alive,” “Evil Woman,” “Have You Never Been Mellow” and the title song, “Xanadu.”

The musical features Book by Douglas Carter Beane, Music and Lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar and is based on the Universal Pictures film, screenplay by Richard Danus and Marc Rubel. DOMA's production is directed by Hallie Baran with musical direction by Chris Raymond and choreography by Angela Todaro. It is produced by Michael Abramson and Dolf Ramos and the DOMA Theatre Company.

The show stars Allyson Blackstone, LovLee Carroll, Taji Coleman, Morgan Gallant, Alan Lee, Matt O’Neill, Brittany Rodin; Bradley Sattler, Veronica Scheyving, David Michael Treviño and Lindsay Zana.

DOMA Theatre Company's production plays at The MET Theatre, 1089 N. Oxford Ave., Los Angeles Calif. For tickets, scheduling and more information, visit www.DomaTheatre.com.
