Guess who is going out on the town tonight? Yeah! That’s right! This mom! Wahooooo!
Tonight three friends and I are going to see Flashdance, the musical, and it is going to be so AWESOME!
Celebrating its 30th Anniversary, the pop culture phenomenon of FLASHDANCE is now live on stage. With electrifying dance at its core, FLASHDANCE-THE MUSICAL tells the inspiring and unforgettable story of Alex Owens, a Pittsburgh steel mill welder by day and a bar dancer by night with dreams of one day becoming a professional performer. When romance with her steel mill boss threatens to complicate her ambitions, Alex learns the meaning of love and its power to fuel the pursuit of her dream.
OK. Seriously. Who in a similar age bracket as myself, did NOT own a pair of legwarmers! I know I did, and now I see them out again, for my daughter. Fashion is just crazy y’all!
My friends and I, are sure to be singing along to the musical score that includes the biggest hit songs from the movie, including the Academy Award-winning title song “Flashdance – What a Feeling,” “Maniac,” “Gloria,” “Manhunt,” and “I Love Rock & Roll.” It would we wrong to let the star of the show sing all by her lonesome, wouldn’t it???
In addition to the hits we all know, 16 brand new songs have been written for the musical with music by Robbie Roth and lyrics by Robert Cary and Robbie Roth. I can’t wait to sport my cut up, off the shoulder sweatshirt for the occasion, and I may, or may not, be breaking out the leg warmers too. When in Rome, people!
