Flashdance – The Musical
Adattamento teatrale a cura del PalkettoStage
Flashdance the Musical is a stage adaptation of the 1983 musical film Flashdance. The show had its world premiere in 2008 in Plymouth, followed by a United Kingdom tour through May 2009 and a 16-week London West End run at the Shaftesbury Theatre through January 2011. The musical had a US tour in 2013-2015 but an expected Broadway run was postponed.
Set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the show revolves around 18-year-old Alex, a welder by day and ‘flashdancer’ by night, and her dreams of attending the prestigious Shipley Dance Academy.
Based on the Paramount Pictures film (Screenplay by Tom Hedley and Joe Eszterhas, story by Tom Hedley) the UK production described itself as “an unmistakably unique musical about holding onto your dreams and love against all the odds”. The show includes hits “Maniac”, “Manhunt”, “Gloria”, the award-winning title track “Flashdance – What a Feeling”.
