As one critic observes in this PBS documentary, "It’s so weird that there’s nothing gay about the Broadway show Xanadu, but it feels like the gayest show I’ve ever seen on Broadway.”

Sexuality aside, the show has a sense of camp that manages to simultaneously celebrate and lampoon the state of broadway theatre and pop culture, all with a soundtrack that just about everyone already knows. You and your family can be there when the Broadway tour comes through Playhouse Square, because we’ve got a family pack of four tickets to give away to the person who can answer any of these questions:

1) Who was the Xanadu songwriter's and the name of his popular British symphonic rock band?
2) Xanadu is considered a remake of what Rita Hayworth movie?
3) Name the film's original choreographer and went on to direct the first 3 "High School Musical" movies.
4) EXTRA CREDIT: Xanadu was a song written by what 70's Progressive rock band, and what was the name of the album it appeared on?

To win the tickets, e-mail your answers to with Xanadu in the subject line. Be sure to include your name, address, age & phone number!
