FEATURING GINGER MINJ AND JINKX MONSOON
OF RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE

THE TAFT THEATRE
OCTOBER 3, 2019
XANADU, the hilarious roller-skating musical adventure, hailed as “the most fun you’ll have on Broadway” (The New Yorker), returns in a national tour with some fierce new twists! XANADU follows the beautiful Greek muse, Kira, as she journeys from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, circa 1980, on a quest to inspire scrappy artist-on-the-rise Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! However, when Kira stumbles into forbidden love with Sonny, a mere mortal, her salty sisters (RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Ginger Minj and Jinkx Monsoon) take matters into their own hands.
Based on the 1980 cult film starring Olivia Newton-John, the Tony Award®-nominated musical features a book by Douglas Carter Beane and an original hit score by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne (Electric Light Orchestra) and John Farrar. This production will be directed by Alan Souza and choreographed by Maxx Reed. XANADU is a crowd-pleasing, feel-good bop of a Technicolor musical that has audiences jumping out of their seats in tongue-popping bliss! “If you can’t beat ’em, slap on some roller skates and join ’em” (The New York Times).
XANADU has a limited number of VIP Experiences for each performance, so be sure to act fast! Included are premium seats (it’s like you’re AT the roller disco!) as well as a post-show photo experience with RuPaul’s Drag Race SUPERSTARS Ginger Minj and Jinkx Monsoon. You’ll roll away with memories of the most FABULOUS night of your life!
