"What a Feeling" it is. Thirty years after the film about a young welder with dreams of becoming a professional dancer hit the big screen, Flashdance -- The Musical brings the inspiring story to the stage. Featuring all the hit songs (including the Oscar-winning title track), plus 16 brand new tunes, this high-energy production follows Alex, a "steel town girl on a Saturday night," as she pursues her dance dreams. Just when it seems she's going to make it, a wrong-side-of-the-tracks romance with her boss threatens to derail her goals. This adaptation of the movie that taught women to rock leg warmers includes the Grammy-winning soundtrack smashes "Maniac," "Gloria," "Manhunt" and "I Love Rock 'n' Roll." Learn More

CP does a fantastic job of bringing 12 different characters to life and putting together an interesting story of growing up in the Bronx in the 60's.
Great venue (a continuously operating theatre since 1900!) and a very entertaining hour and a half.
<p>In A Bronx Tale, the celebrated play on which he based the legendary movie, Chazz Palminteri brings 18 characters to vivid life in this gripping tale of a rough childhood on the Bronx streets. A Bronx Tale was first mounted Off-Broadway in 1989 and helped establish Palminteri as a writer and actor with a distinct voice. After starring in the feature film adaptation alongside Robert DeNiro, Palminteri brings his original one-man play to Boston with direction by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks.
Says Chazz: "A Bronx Tale is a fictionalized story based on a true incident. When I was a young boy growing up in the Bronx, I witnessed a man shoot another man right in front of me while I was sitting on my stoop. At that time, I thought they were fighting over the parking space in front of my building. I never did find out what they were fighting over, but it doesn't matter now anyway. That incident was how A Bronx Tale began." </p>
