Sparks will fly this year as the West End Premiere of FLASHDANCE – The Musical explodes onto the stage at the Shaftesbury Theatre from September 2010. Leading the cast are Matt Willis (Busted, I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here) as Nick and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt (Flashdance The Musical UK tour, Grease) as Alex.
Set in Pittsburgh, USA, FLASHDANCE tells the story of 18 year old Alex, a welder by day and ‘flashdancer’ by night, whose dream is to obtain a place at the prestigious Shipley Dance Academy.
Based on the Paramount Pictures film (Screenplay by Tom Hedley and Joe Eszterhas, story by Tom Hedley) FLASHDANCE is an unmistakably unique musical about holding onto your dreams and love against all the odds. The show features an iconic score including the smash hit "Maniac", along with “Manhunt”, "Gloria", “I Love Rock & Roll” and the Academy Award winning title track "Flashdance - What a Feeling" as well as 10 original songs created for the musical.
Full of pulsating raw energy and breathtaking choreography by Arlene Phillips (Strictly Come Dancing, Grease, Starlight Express, Saturday Night Fever) FLASHDANCE – The Musical promises to be the theatrical event of the year – so take your passion and make it happen!
