It was a lot of fun, watching a goofy play title Xanadu, but it was so well done, great sets and acoustics, great voices, etc. Well worth the evening.

We saw the show after running into one of the cast members riding her bike in the afternoon. It was fun to watch her that very evening. It made Key West feel like the small town it is. It seemed clear that many of the audience were locals who know the cast members

This is just another way to really enjoy what KW has to offer. We saw Xanadu. It was so well done and entertaining. The playhouse is located at Mallory Square so we caught the sunset then caught the play. The people running the theatre were friendly. Will make sure to go again on my next yearly visit. Buy your ticket on line a head of time. It is a small theatre so it fills quickly.
