I couldn’t find Flashdance the Musical reviews for the tour that is in DC at the Kennedy Center right now, but my one friend has already gone to see Flashdance the Musical twice this week so I knew it had to be good. Normally I hate when people use letters like OMG as words or phrases, but when it comes to Flashdance the Musical, OMG, Amazeballs, Go Now! It brings back everything I love about theatre and more.

Should I Buy Tickets to Flashdance the Musical?
If you are thinking about buying tickets to Flashdance the musical, I highly recommend it. Not only does it feature a ton of the original songs, but there are new ones mixed in. It features amazing 80’s styled music but more importantly, 80’s acting, singing and dancing. Singing songs instead of mimicking singers, actually feeling them and having fun with them instead of turning them into theatre like in the show Rock of Ages is something that has been missing from Broadway.
Flashdance the Musical stays very close to the way the movie was which makes it amazing. The characters really feel the music and although they do turn some of it into more of a broadway styled song, the heart of the music is actually there. You actually feel what they are feeling, but hear real singing like you’d expect to hear on a movie soundtrack instead of a broadway cast recording. That is one of the reasons that Flashdance the Musical ended up being a show that I loved. The next is the dancing. You have amazing dancing in Wicked, great routines in other shows, but Flashdance the musical actually has real dancing in the show.
A lot of people will yell at me for saying that other shows don’t have real dancing, or that Flashdance the movie and Flashdance the Musical are shows about dancing so it has to be good, but when you watch the show, you see real style, grace and actual lines, variations of styles and movement. The dancing is insanely spot on and they are 100% dancers on stage as well as actors, singers and performers. They climb and swing from poles, flip around stair cases, spin, leap, breakdance, tumble, jump, lift, dance with props, form patterns and everything else you think of when you think of dance. The amount of talent in the cast of Flashdance the Musical is above and beyond what I have seen in any broadway show or touring cast in years.
I hadn’t heard of any of the Actors in this cast before, but there was not a single bad performer, character or anything I could say. Everything was perfect. The sound, lighting, dancing, music, singing, acting, staging and overall performance was perfect. This is the first movie to broadway show I have ever seen that I could say that about and probably one of the very few musicals that I haven’t been able to think of anything I didn’t enjoy with it. Flashdance the Musical was absolutely amazing and if you get a chance to buy tickets to Flashdance the Musical, don’t think about it, buy them.
