Yep… I went all the way back to my teens last night… my daughter and I went to see Flashdance the Musical.. and it was FAB!!!
I was the same age as my daughter (whispers 16) when Flashdance was the all the rave and FAME was the best thing since sliced bread on the telly..
The music was great, the singing was fantastic and the dancing was out of this world. Here is the blurb on it 🙂
“The first ever tour of the World Premiere production of FLASHDANCE is set to take Edinburgh by storm!
Set in Pittsburgh, USA, FLASHDANCE tells the story of 18 year old Alex, a welder by day and ‘flashdancer’ by night, whose dream is to obtain a place at the prestigious Shipley Dance Academy.
The show, based on the Paramount Pictures film (Screenplay by Tom Hedley and Joe Eszterhas, story by Tom Hedley), features an iconic score including the smash hit “Maniac”, along with “Manhunt”, “Gloria”, “I Love Rock & Roll” and the Academy Award winning title track “Flashdance – What a Feeling”.
Full of pulsating raw energy and breathtaking choreography by Arlene Phillips (Grease, Strictly Come Dancing, Starlight Express, Saturday Night Fever) FLASHDANCE is an unmistakably unique musical about holding onto your dreams and love against all the odds. It promises to be the musical event of the year – so take your passion and make it happen! “
