Everyone has heard of Xanadu, the 1980s Hollywood flop film, but did you know that it was based on a true story? In this production, the real live actual Greek muses took over an NYU theater for the night to avenge themselves from their Hollywoord flop and performed their story the way it actually happened. Trouble was, despite being wildly successful at inspiring other artists, they had never actually made a play themselves! Hilarity ensued as our nine Greek muses each went in pursuit of their vision of the great gift of "Xanadu" while trying to behave like mortals and complete their official mission of inspiring the street artist Sonny Malone.
