Olivia Newton John was in Brisbane in 1999 and Maynard renewed his acquaintance with her for an hour, talking about her music and movie career.
Starting with Sam (1977), then Grease (1979), on to Xanadu (1980) and then to her getting Physical (1981).
It was the 20th anniversary of the Grease movie and soundtrack, and she discussed her nervousness at auditioning for the role of Sandy for Alan Carr, even though he had specifically asked her to take the role, after meeting her at a dinner party at Helen Reddy’s Los Angeles home.
In this show you’ll be transported (on roller skates) by Olivia performing songs from the movie Xanadu on the grand final of the Countdown Xanadu Dance contest.
The show starts with her early sound, and takes you through her pop and movie career, then goes full circle back to her latest Country release.
