"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

I thought this was an innovative and effective production, in a variety of ways. It began with the actors introducing themselves and bantering a bit with the audience in English before shifting to Norwegian to start the play, and after just a few minutes it seemed completely natural to be hearing the dialogue in Norwegian while checking the supertitles for the translation of it. The raked and rotating stage platform was simple but ingenious, with shifting side curtains and backdrop. My only complaint, if I were to voice one, would be that they should have notified the public in their advertising that they had substantially abridged the script for this production. This included not only reducing the play to one act from four, but also entirely removing two of the characters, Aunt Juliana and Berta the servant. But even so, the performance was very tautly and intensely acted by all the actors and conveyed Ibsen's messages and observations quite effectively. (And all the better that we got the Goldstar discount!)
