Perhaps you as Gene Kelly says in the original movie have “been known to twinkle a toe or two.” Then you’ve probably already seen the stage version of “Xanadu.” Like a dozen times. And your head has blossomed anew with headbands and feathered locks.

Well, if you want to go again or see it for the first time, it’s really a hoot “Xanadu” tickets for Sunday-Friday performances can be had for a special “happy” price of $44. Just hit the Broadway in Chicago site and enter the promo code “HAPPY” (or mention it at the box office). This offer is good for performances through March 29, but the purchase must be made by March 15. (Alas, this does not apply to the seats available on the stage.) (Yes, there are seats available on the stage!)

Can’t get enough? Then buy now for the “Xanadu Sing-Along” coming at midnight March 20 at the Music Box. They show the movie, you dress up like a Greek goddess and sing along. Tickets available here.
