Live theater tends to be more thrilling than film, largely due to the heightened odds of seeing someone flub a line or deliver a stirring monologue while sitting in your lap. Vicariously live the freewheeling thespian life with today’s GrouponLive deal to see Xanadu at Starlight Theatre. Click here for a list of ticket options.
Roller skates, rainbows, and glitter erupt in flamboyant fashion in Starlight Theatre’s production of Xanadu, a mythology-inspired camp-rock romp that raises eyebrows and elicits laughs from the audience as winged horses and Greek gods skate across the stage. Inspired by the 1980s cult-classic, Tony Award–nominated film of the same name, Xanadu tells the timeless love story of a man, his muse, and his roller disco. Sincere yet intrinsically campy, this parody unleashes a glitzy onstage discotheque populated by a roster of tuneful trolley-shoes, each sporting sparkling costumes while belting out memorable hits from the likes of Olivia Newton John and Electric Light Orchestra.
The castle-inspired architecture of Starlight Theatre's outdoor stage supplements its regal red-brick spires with blooming gardens and soaring fountains looping around the lobby. The historical theater is a nonprofit organization dedicated to presenting arts and entertainment in a relaxed setting bereft of chicken wire that protects the performers from hurled glass monocles.
