Xanadu: the musical

 

Review


Xanadu: the Musical showcases a cast of talented singers doubling down on the best part of the original film: the soundtrack. Each song was a masterful performance that, despite a few flat notes on the first number, keeps you wanting more of those low electric chords and catchy tunes. Brian Christensen as Sonny Malone never lets his character, Malone, falter, even while singing in a wide range of pitches. Throughout the entire play, there is so much energy from the cast, especially the muses, who, while not having a huge stage, use every inch of it. There were some nice effects like fog and the lighting was controlled well; the costumes were bright and colourful and the props were genuinely hilarious, eliciting howls of laughter from the audience when Pegasus made an appearance. Xanadu is fun, sassy, and one Tartarus of a good time. -Trevor Robson
