"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

Quotes & Highlights
- "Cripple emerges as a subversive charmer that shows off Mr. McDonagh’s skills as an expectation-thwarting master of knotted yarns...It’s hard to imagine an interpretation that makes this play’s singular melding of sentimentality and savagery feel more organic than this one does." --New York Times
This Druid and Atlantic Theater Company co-production of Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan won nine major international theatre awards in 2009 including the Joe A. Callaway Award for Outstanding Direction (Garry Hynes), Best Production and Outstanding Ensemble.
It’s 1934 and news on the island of Inishmaan is thin on the ground. Then word arrives that they’re making a Hollywood film on neighbouring Inishmore and Cripple Billy for once is paying attention. The Cripple of Inishmaan is a comic masterpiece which sees eccentric island characters trade stories to within an inch of their lives while a young man tries to make sense of who he is. Winner of critical acclaim in three countries, this brilliant comic masterpiece comes complete with suspense and a great deal of heart.
