    Heaven on Wheels, and in Leg Warmers

    Charles Isherwood

    July 11, 2007: Can a musical be simultaneously indefensible and irresistible? Why, yes it can. Witness 'Xanadu, the outlandishly enjoyable stage spoof of the outrageously bad movie from 1980.

    90 minutes of souped-up silliness and broad comedy. Kerry Butler is simply out of this world as Kira. Delightfully inspired.

  • NEW YORKER REVIEW OF xanadu

    Xanadu (at the Helen Hayes) is so ridiculously brilliant, so lavish and sublime a confection that any set of adjectives you might come up with after a single viewing will more than likely be replaced by another set of ineffectual adjectives once you'e seen the show a second or third time.
