Starring Ginger Minj and Jinkx Monsoon from RuPaul’s Drag Race
Turn back the clock because this retro musical adventure is kicking into high gear! Based on the cult movie starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, you’ll instantly recognize Xanadu’s hit songs including “Magic” and “Don’t Walk Away.”
Nominated for four Tony Awards including Best Musical, this electrifying tale of endless entertainment imagines what happens when a beautiful Greek muse descends upon Venice Beach to help a struggling artist open the first roller disco. (Hey, it’s 1980!) Adding to the fun and frolic, RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni Ginger Minj and Jinkx Monsoon co-star to make Xanadu extra-packed with “charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent,” as RuPaul would say!
Additionally, to celebrate Coastal Virginia's wonderfully diverse community, we are collaborating with Outwire757 to host OUT at The American this season. Whether you're single, married, or with kids, everyone has a place at The American Theatre. We invite the LGBTQ+ community to meet, mix, mingle and, of course, enjoy a fabulous show!
