Flashdance Musical Begins Previews Tonight
"First when there's nothing but a slow glowing dream..."
Unfortunately, truer words may have never been more prescient than those opening lines to the signature tune for Flashdance - The Musical were last evening. There was nothing but dreams for audiences who had tickets as maniacal technical issues forced postponement of the first preview for Flashdance The Musical at London's Shaftesbury Theatre until tonight. (What? They couldn't get the water bucket to work properly?)
According to the musical's official web site:
Sparks will fly as the West End Premiere of Flashdance - The Musical explodes onto the stage starring Matt Willis as Nick and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as Alex.
Set in Pittsburgh USA, Flashdance - The Musical 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. Flashdance - The Musical is full of pulsating raw energy and breathtaking choreography by Arlene Phillips (and) promises to be the theatrical event of the year!
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
