Tickets and Events
Movies are great, but no matter what you're watching, sitting in front of a screen can't match the excitement and passion of seeing a live performance. Want to catch a big-time show? Here's your chance: half-price tickets to see the award-winning, smash-hit Broadway musical Xanadu, right in San Jose!
This hilarious hit on wheels (no, seriously—it's performed on roller skates) made its NYC premiere during the 2007 – 2008 season and quickly became one of the biggest surprises in Broadway history. It's a fun, irreverent, inspiring musical send-up of the 1980s Olivia Newton John/Gene Kelly film flop of the same name. Brilliantly and inspiringly re-invented by master storyteller Douglas Carter Beane, the show's story is a pop-music filled recounting of a Greek goddess's campy quest from My. Olympus to Venice Beach, CA. It's tons of fun for adults and children alike!
Xanadu won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Musical and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical. The New York Times and Washington Post gave it rave reviews. It's coming to San Jose, and you can see it on Feb. 25, 26, or 27, 2011. Grab this Plum Deal and add your two thumbs up!
