Flashdance The Musical 2013

Having been rewritten since making its London debut in 2010, Flashdance The Musical is finally ready to premier on Broadway. First, however, the play based on the 1983 film will embark on a national tour, visiting theaters in the Midwest and Southern regions of the country from January through July. Alex Owens, the welder by day, dancer by the night at the heart of the story, and the rest of the ensemble cast will head to the Great White Way for their more sedentary – and hopefully long-lived – residency beginning next August.

Once 2013 rolls around, Flashdance The Musical will waste no time warming up for Broadway. The cast is scheduled to perform in Pittsburgh, PA, on January 1 for five days, before heading on to St. Louis, Louisville, Grand Rapids, Wilmington, Atlanta… and on and on, until the final show in Dallas, TX, on July 7. Although Playbill reports the play has been “substantially rewritten” following its tepid reception on the West End, through each iteration it’s remained true to the love story/tale of ambition that made the film such a success. In addition to original hits like “What a Feeling” and “Maniac,” the stage adaption will feature 16 new songs. Emily Padgett, who’s previously starred in Rock of Ages and understudied for lead roles in Grease and Legally Blonde, will play Alex on the national tour, while Matthew Hydzik (West Side Story, Grease) will support her as love-interest Nick.
