"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

It made me very sad. Anyone who had never seen a modern dance concert would never, ever, go to another one after seeing this man's work. It was self-indulgent, loud, and repetitive. As each successive young couple walked out of the theater in disgust, I lamented, "The modern dance community has lost potential devotees because of this trash."
I do not understand why Kennedy Center would bring this company here.
