Travel back to a time of big hair, shoulder pads and leg warmers with Hey! Dancin'! Hey! Musical!, the '80s musical based on Factory Theater's hit comedy, which Time Out Chicago named one of the best plays in the city. Set in Chicago in 1986, this hilarious musical is packed with original songs that evoke everything from the power ballads of Heart to the feel-good synth-pop of The Pointer Sisters and Glenn Frey. The story follows teenagers Halle and Trisha as they finagle their way into the final taping of the hippest cable-access dance show in the Chicagoland area in the hopes of finding true love.
