Fabulous choreography. Singing for the most part very good, although once again I had trouble hearing all the words, particularly from the male lead who had a great voice but probably wasn't miked enough.

It has to be said that this is a pre-Broadway show and as such, there are some kinks to be worked out. The acting and dancing was very good, the cast quite talented but the show was bogged down with mediocre lyrics and some extended dance...continued

The dancing was excellent, and so was the singing and music. The storyline was so-so (OK), but the theater was FREEZING. The A/C was turned down way too low !

The performance was fast-paced and entertaining enough...but our Goldstar seats were lousy. I had invited a European friend who's in town and was embarrassed by our so-called "orchestra" location. I may not use Goldstar again.

Flashdance is a title i could not resist. Remembering the awesome dancing girl that wins her dream; back in the 80's that was a big deal for me and apparently still is! I asked my son to see Flashdance with me and although it would not be his...continued

Excellent show. The dancing was exceptional. On occasion, the dancing, singing, and music seemed a tad bit out of sync. Overall, it was a wonderful live production.
