"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

Direct from Broadway, August: Osage County stars Academy Award-winner Estelle Parsons as Violet Weston, a pill-popping, deeply unsettled woman caught in the grip of addiction. When Violet’s alcoholic husband mysteriously disappears, her extended clan reunites at their rural Oklahoma homestead for a big, juicy family showdown that’s as hilarious as it is shocking. Originally created by the renowned Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, August: Osage County is a rare theatrical event — a large scale work filled with unforgettable characters, a powerful tale told with unflinching honesty.
