"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

What an incredible performance! The dancing was entrancing! I loved every minute of each of the three offerings, all three choreographed by Twyla Tharp. And best of all, we had the great and rare privilege of seeing Ms. Tharp in person as she took a bow at the conclusion of the third and final offering. For me, the highlight of the program was "Surfer at the River Styx." Jonathan Jordan is a marvel, a force of nature, a consumate artist.
