Flashdance, the musical, is truly a spectacle - lots of fantastic dancing, good songs, great staging, etc. However, the production is much too frantic with too many subplots so that, at the end, one doesn't empathize with any of the characters - even the main characters are so sparsely drawn that one really doesn't care what happens to them in the end. It's hard to see how this could ever win over audiences for more than one viewing. It could definitely use a re-working.

Check out the musical’s official website.
Launching both a Broadway production and U.S. national tour, Flashdance tells the inspiring and unforgettable story of Alex Owens, a working-class girl from Pittsburgh with a dream of becoming a professional dancer. She works by day as a steel mill welder, and a bar dancer at night while aspiring to be accepted at a prestigious ballet academy. When Alex catches the eye of her boss Nick Hurley, their romance shows her the meaning of love and drives her ambition to pursue her dream.
The original Paramount Pictures film was a worldwide smash hit that became a pop culture phenomenon, grossing over $150 million and featuring a Grammy Award-winning soundtrack.

Flashdance features a book by Tom Hedley (co-writer of the original screenplay with Joe Eszterhas), and Robert Cary, music by Robbie Roth, lyrics by Robert Cary and Robbie Roth and direction and choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis).
