Overview

Turning a notorious film flop into Broadway fun, Xanadu defies the skeptics and reinvents the 1980s Olivia Newton-John movie as a deliciously campy stage show. Roller-skating beauty Kira convinces down-on-his-luck artist Sonny to build Venice Beach's first roller disco. Romance and song ensue, with the revamped film music by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar delivered via a stellar Broadway cast.

Although I do enjoy all of the Jackie Hoffman and Mary Testa work (thus two stars instead of one). Otherwise this is just plain bad!

The story here was sure better then the movie. So you should get it.

I have been an avid collector of cast recordings for the past 30 years, including shows I've liked and didn't like and those I did have a chance to see. I did have the opportunity to see Xanadu on stage and it was the longest 90 minutes I've ever had seeing a live performance with the exception of some fun one-liners from the supporting cast. The CD is even worse "is that possible?". In all fairness some kudos must go to the Evil Woman track and some of Mr. Jackson's high notes are thrilling. Ms. Butler is a major weak link sounding breathy and unsure...and yes I get the accent is supposed to be bad...but give me a break. Skip this one.

I agree with the previous review post. Skip this one. I can't believe that Broadway has come to this not to mention the incredibly shoddy quality of the recording. Cheyenne Jackson comes off the strongest but he is fighting an uphill battle. Here's to looking forward to recordings of the new productions of Gypsy and South Pacific.
