UPDATE: "Xanadu On Broadway" To Close September 28th

It was just announced that Xanadu, the hit Broadway musical with a book written by Wilkes-Barre native Douglas Carter Beane, will play its final performance on Sunday, September 28th; it was originally set to close two weeks later on Sunday, October 12th.

I've seen the show three times and absolutely LOVED IT.

Xanadu opened on Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theatre in NYC on July 10, 2007 to rave reviews. It was nominated for four 2008 Tony Awards, including one for Best Book of a Musical for Beane.

If you haven't seen it yet, this is your final chance. To purchase tickets, click here. Ticket prices range from $60 to $110, with steep discounts available through sites such as TheaterMania; in addition, a handful of tickets for on-stage seating (priced at $41) are available for every performance.

Congratulations to Douglas Carter Beane and the entire cast and crew of Xanadu for a successful run and a job well done.
