I'm pretty sure this is a sign of the Apocalypse: Xanadu Skates Again Off-Broadway

I'm skeptical, and probably wouldn't pay to see it, unless they're planning to bring back Gene Kelly through some sort of voodoo.

The wheels are so far in motion that one of the stars has already been replaced due to an ankle injury, and the curtain isn't supposed to go up until June 26. Hopefully, the former cast of Starlight Express can offer some tips on healing quickly.

But to be fair, Xanadu isn't the first or last bad movie (soooooo bad it's good and good for ya) to be made into a musical, and Spiderman and the Addams Family are supposed to be coming up in the near future. Xanadu may be the least of our concerns. Judging from their website, they don't take themselves too seriously. Not a bad marketing technique. In the end, it might not be sooo bad... You have to believe we are magic.
