The Palace Theater in Manchester is home to many well-known theater productions that entertain the diverse community in the city. One such show is 'Flashdance', which is running at the Palace until November 17th. From tasteful 80's fashion popping up through different costumes to classic songs from the decade, this production brings the best of the 80's (while still appealing to those of us who are perhaps less of a fan). Alongside the great music, this production also featured projection work, live video, and unique lighting to bring a tasteful diversity to a minimalistic set design.

80'er festen har ramt operaen i Kobenhavn i skikkelse af Flashdance the musical. Endnu en gang har One and only musical teater sat alle sejl til for at give tilskuerne en stor teateroplevelse og det ligger da ogsa rigtig godt ud, da man bliver smidt lige tilbage til 80erne med sangen What a feeling, man kan ligesom se det hoje har og benvarmerne for sig. Sicilia Gadborg er sod og fin i sin rolle som Alex Owens hun har en fraekhed og en sodme som passer godt til rollen. Silas Holst spiller den anden store hovedrolle som Nick Hurley, men det er lidt som om, han forsvinder i maengden og aldrig rigtig kommer ud over scenekanten. Jeg tror ikke, at det er Silas´s skyld men mere, at det desvaerre ikke er et rigtig godt manuskript, de har at arbejde med. Nogle af dem der skiller sig ud er de 3 biroller Mrs. Wilder og Louise spillet af Nastja Arcel. Der er bid i de roller og nogen man husker, nar lyset bliver taendt i salen efter fremkaldelsen. Hannnah Owens som spilles af Ditte Grabol er en anden figur, som man husker. Ditte besidder et talent, der gor, at selv de mindste roller behersker hun og hendes rolle var en af de eneste, som jeg troede 100 procent pa. Ellers er stykket fuldt af flotte danseoptrin og dette kan de virkelig og det er der festen virkelig begynder og de har salen i deres hule hand. Sa er det jo en fest, at der er sa meget 80'er pop samlet pa et sted. Jeg vil gerne fremhaeve Rikke Hvidbjerg, som har en fantastisk stemme og som virkelig er et scoop for forestillingen. Desvaerre synes jeg, at Flashdance bliver lidt af en flad oplevelse, som aldrig rigtig kommer helt i gang.
