TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Lace up your skates and roll on over to City Theater Company (CTC) this spring for Xanadu, the hit musical comedy featuring music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar and a book by Douglas Carter Beane. It’s a campy romp that slyly sends up the ’80s movie that inspired it while retaining all the innocent fun of an era that produced big hair, cheesy rock anthems, and neon legwarmers.
The Broadway debut had critics raving. The New Yorker’s Hilton Als pointed out that the self-effacing glee of the piece “points out just how tame most other musicals are” and Charles Isherwood of The New York Times raved that it was “simultaneously indefensible and irresistible…there’s so much silly bliss to be had.” CTC’s version features a roller-rink inspired set, complete with levels that allow actors to zoom all around the audience.

Xanadu is the perfect choice to close out CTC’s 19th season, according to Board President Michelle Kramer-Fitzgerald.  She is especially excited to present Delaware’s Off-Broadway experience to a younger generation. “CTC shows tend toward the R-rated, but Xanadu manages to strike a cool balance between family-friendly fare and edgy, grown-up fun. This production is a great opportunity for CTC to connect with our die-hard fans as well as their younger family members, and it’s a chance for us to introduce tween and teen arts enthusiasts to an intimate, interactive live theater experience not found elsewhere in the area.”

On April 26, opening night, join us for the official after-party downtown at Chelsea Tavern. Enjoy drink specials and private seating at the local hotspot. Xanadu runs for three weekends, ending Saturday, May 11. One matinee performance is scheduled for Sunday, May 5 at 2:00 p.m. All other shows have 8:00 p.m. curtain times.For ticketing details visit www.city-theater.org.
