After reading the lukewarm reviews, I didn't know what to expext, but was pleasantly surprised. We really enjoyed this show. The singing was great across the board as was the music. The dancing, although technically good, appeared pretty dated,...continued

We really enjoyed the show! The music was good and the dancing was great! It was a lot of fun! The theater was pretty warm, but sometimes the Kennedy Center is pretty cold so hard to dress appropriately!

Thrilled and giddy in my Row H seat, I sang along and mentally danced the iconic choreography while dazzled and inspired by the dancers on stage! Hard to believe the movie was released 30 yrs ago, (the actors on stage weren’t even born!). Thirty...continued

I went into seeing Flashdance with low expectations. The show was okay but nowhere near Broadway caliber. I have to respect how the composers created original songs with an 80s feel. However, the show needs to be trimmed in a big way and the...continued

The musical was fine, the scenery well done, but the main character´s voice was not the best. The key scene dancing by the chair lacked force.

The show seemed lifeless, did not zing. Too few cast members on stage for the big songs, which should have brought the audience to its feet but instead received polite applause. Cast is extremely talented with great bios. The show's energy...continued

We enjoyed the show though one of our Red Velvet seats had a slightly obstructed view.

Lead actress was not so good. Her dancing and voice could have been better. There was other actress in the play that could have play the lead role better. On the most famous songs of the movie they focus little on it.

Singing was great. Dancing was great. Too many subplots which made story move slowly and took away from the impact.

I had high hopes for this show but it was nothing special. The actors are excellent and that's the good part. However, the choreography is choppy, the songs (even the good ones) are nothing special, and the music is way too loud. Better to see the...continued

There are several elements of "Flashdance" that are great. The live band/orchestra is fantastic and adds a nice element of excitement to the performance. The supporting cast is also very strong, including the two main back-up female singers and...continued

Harder to judge a production when it is a classic. The dancing was a little too burlesque rather than modern dance. The hip hop/street dancing seemed out of the time frame. That said, the dancing was well done. The miners' clothing were well...continued

Fabulous sets, fabulous dancing, thin story line. Several stand-out performers, including not only the star but also the two women who played the (somewhat) older and rather raunchy dancers -- they were riveting. It was impossible to understand...continued

Great seats, great theater, great show. They did a great job of following the film with minor changes kept the music, but could have used a better dancer for the lead(Alex) and hunkier male lead (Hurley). But a great
way to spend 2 hours.

Nice trip down memory lane for me (I'm an eighties kid), but my 16-yr-old daughter also enjoyed it a lot. Cast was good, with the exception of 1 or 2 actors. We especially loved the 2 alto dancers/singers. First part was very entertaining, good...continued

It was the best dance musical since West Side Story! The acting was superb, the costumes were outstanding, the songs, music & lyrics were fabulous, the orchestra was the best; playing perfectly to still hear the song's lyrics, the sets were so...continued
