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

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...)

Oh, and I cover Tess, Gloria, Kiki, and Miss Wilde. If I go on for any of these tracks my regular track is simply cut. Done. (more...)
