Imagining skaters inside the confines of the rather tight Duke Energy Theatre is a little bit far out - until you consider Queen City Theatre Company is behind it all. In its latest production of Xanadu The Musical, there will be wheels, squeals and '80s flashbacks. For those unfamiliar with the cult classic movie that starred the lovely Olivia Newton-John, the show follows the journey of a magical Greek muse who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach on a quest to inspire a struggling artist to follow his dreams.
