FLASHDANCE The Musical
by Tom Hedley, Robert Cary and Robie Roth
Flashdance: The Musical is an adaptation for the scene of the movie, of which the principle song What A Feeling won an Oscar for the best song in 1983. The title refers to a genre of jazz dance, popular between the 20s and 30s of the last century, that combines dance with acrobatics. Directed by Adrian Lyne, the movie influenced the 80s cinematography for the innovative choice of inserting some sequences filmed in “video clip” style.

This version was followed by another new production in 2010 for the London West End and during the season 2013-2014 the musical was taken to Broadway. During 2014-15 it toured the United States.
