BWW Reviews: Local Actor, Corey Mach, Turns on Audience in FLASHDANCE at the Palace
by Roy Berko - Apr 04, 2014

On opening night, when Corey Mach made his first appearance on stage in 'Flashdance The Musical,' the audience, after being prepped about his entrance by Gina Vernaci, Senior Vice President of Theater Operations, greeted him with a lengthy ovation.

BWW Reviews: PPAC Flashes Back to the '80s with Touring FLASHDANCE: THE MUSICAL
by Robert Barossi - Mar 26, 2014

When adapting movies into Broadway musicals, it certainly helps to start with a movie that revolves around singing and dancing. Or, at least, a movie that includes some kind of singing or dancing as a major part of the story or plot.

The whole movie revolves around…wait for it…dance! Unfortunately, the Broadway touring production that is visiting PPAC takes a promising start and turns it into a long, bloated and mostly boring slog through two hours at the theater. (more...)

BWW Reviews: FLASHDANCE Goes Maniac
by Harmony Wheeler - Feb 06, 2014

Before "So You Think You Can Dance" and the "Step Up" films, there was "Flashdance," the 80s cult classic that brought us songs like "Maniac" and "I Love Rock N Roll."

BWW Reviews: FLASHDANCE Makes Cincinnati a Maniac
by Kelly Thompson - Nov 05, 2013

Flashdance the Musical is a fun night at the theater. Am I going to remember some inspirational message or an overarching theme, probably not but what I will remember is that I had a great night at the theater. Isn't that ultimately what musical theater is about? Flashdance had upbeat music, emotional moments and great choreography, basically everything that I hoped I would see. (more...)
