Footloose - 2019 - Washington, DC (Regional)


Everybody cut Footloose! The Kennedy Center presents an all-new, semi-staged concert production of everyone's favorite rock'n'roll musical. Featuring an Oscar®- and Tony®-nominated top 40 score, this new version, directed by Tony Award® winner Walter Bobbie, explodes onto the stage. The musical features all of the pulse-raising hit songs, such as "Holding Out for a Hero," "Let's Hear it for the Boy," and the exhilarating title track "Footloose."

When rebellious teenager Ren McCormack moves from Chicago to a small town in Texas where dance and rock music are forbidden, he leads his classmates around the law, and Reverend Shaw Moore, to break free and have a rock'n'roll senior prom.

Like many of us, I haven’t set foot in my gym since lockdown. As a result, painful pavement pounding has become all-too familiar. As the days get shorter, colder and wetter, my motivation has waned more than a little and listening to my tired playlists is actually stunting my progress rather than enhancing it. Then, a lightbulb moment! A playlist made up of the best tracks from musicals. Surely those tunes that make you want to dance in your theatre seat will work when you are out on the road? I can confirm these beats work-I just wish I had thought of them earlier.
