Crimped hair, scrunchies, and leg warmers. Ah, the '80s. The fashions of the decade were unforgettable. And the movies of the decade were memorable too. Remember Flashdance? How can anyone forget the main character's water-drenched dance audition? Get ready for your flashback to the '80s. The play, directed and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis, and the Addams Family), tells the story of Alex, a working-class girl from Pittsburgh who dreams of leaving her life behind to become a professional dancer. If you already know you love the story line, you will also love the music in this play. You'll be humming "Flashdance -- What a Feeling" and "Maniac" during the entire car ride home. You may even be inspired to take a dance class or two.
