Hit musical for Docklands
30 Nov 2010
Having had more than 500 performances on Broadway and nominations for three Tony Awards, the musical ‘Xanadu’ is coming to Melbourne and Docklands has the honour of hosting the show.
With many Billboard top 20 hits and a “sell-out” US tour, the musical based on the 1980 cult-classic movie of the same title, which starred Olivia Newton-John, will run in Docklands for a strict 10-week season.
The show, which will hold a charity preview on March 2 for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Research Centre before its opening night on March 3, will be based in a never-before-seen-in-Australia custom-built performance marquee, “Grand Chapiteaux”.
Designed and constructed along the lines of Cirque du Soleil’s portable venues, the $2 million-plus venue will have 2000 raked seats and full climate control.
After completing its season in Docklands, the musical will then travel to Sydney, followed by Brisbane and then onto all other capital cities and it is expected that it will present over 360 performances in 45 weeks.
