This Tony Award-nominated hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first Roller Disco! (Hey, it’s 1980). But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds. With a hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, XANADU Jr. is hilarity on wheels for adults, children, and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired.
