While most people spent their time during the COVID lockdown bingeing TV series, learning to make sourdough, or teaching themselves to knit, renowned tap dancer and teacher, Felipe Galganni (who was last seen on the cabaret stage as leader of Bossa Tap Trio) developed an entirely new creation – a Brazilian song and dance queen who sprang full blown from his love of the Olivia Newton John classic, Xanadu. He will introduce her to the world in The Rise of Xana DuMe along with her sisters and muses Gisele Bundchen, Carmen Miranda, Ann Miller, and Maria Montez in an evening of wildly entertaining music and terpsichore.
Xana DuMe will be centerstage singing and dancing her way into your hearts as she tickles you with her outrageous style and glamour and her tart-tongued storytelling. Calling on music director Yasuhiko Fukuokaand Bistro Award winning director Gerry Geddes to assist her, Xana DuMe will delight you in her spectacular debut.
