October 11, 2001, Amy Pietz & Kenneth Alan Williams brought
Annie Dorsen's stage adaptation of 'Xanadu' to the 99-seat Gascon
Center Theatre in Culver City, CA. What was thought of as a small
"high school play"-sized dare turned into a month long
major party for everyone, in front and behind the stage, celebrating
the movie, it's camp and the optimistic era it came from. Countless
local fans came out to join these largely sold-out parties, some
numerous times including a few of the films original crew!
follows is just the tip of the iceberg from Simone Hodges photo
collection lifted from her original Xanadu Live! fan site. Unfortunately,
due to selfish bloated egotistical legal baloney, Simone was asked
to take the site down for awhile. However, she did allow us to
share a few XL! moments with you!
