If its a car crash get front row tickets! Go! Go! Go!
Its in Plymouth so it could be a few days before anyone reports on its opening performances.

I do like a bit of car crash theatre to be honest especially after a vino or 2. (evil laugh) I just wanna see the water drop thing as we were robbed at the wedding singer and secretly have a crush on Noel Sullivan (from Hearsay ya know) though I can't really think what part hes playing........

I have no idea? I saw the movie on its second day of release at the Empire Leicester Sq. Seeing a movie like that there in those days, with that soundtrack, was pretty mind blowing!!! The movie I have filed in the very nether regions on my musical mind!!!

Just had a little chat with the press office and they are expecting it to be reviewed by the nationals in Southampton from the first week in August!

A review on the Flashdance site (not sure where it's from)

What a feeling - to walk out of the theatre totally enthused and inspired. Flashdance has to be the hottest musical to hit the stage this year. In short, it is a triumph. The atmosphere emanating from both stage and auditorium was electric as the curtain came down on this fine production.

It was the net result of two and a half hours of fast paced, raunchy, dynamic, innovative, scorchingly good performances, masterfully choreographed, produced and directed by a greatly gifted team. And the early Eighties arenít necessarily the best years to draw inspiration from. Bad hair, bright colours - especially in America where the production set. But the team have taken the best bits of the movie and put it on the stage, giving it a whole new quality you simply donít get in the film.

The scene is set in Pittsburgh, USA, and follows the plight of Alex (Victoria Hamilton-Barritt), whose goal is to obtain a place at a prestigious dance academy. Her triumph over adversity is played out against a scorching score that includes Maniac, Manhunt, Gloria, I Love Rock and Roll and the Academy Award-winning title track, Flashdance Ė What a Feeling.

Victoria Hamilton-Barritt hammers down the role like a carpenter on overtime. I donít know how Noel Sullivan looks back on the success of his HearíSay days, but his true forte is musical theatre. Bruno Langley as the good-gone-bad Jimmy Kaminsky demonstrated just why this show works. On he comes with You Canít Keep Me Down, a fairly run-of-the-mill song, performed in a grey hoodie, to a metallic open backdrop. But his delivery, with some simply outstanding, fresh and uplifting choreography, totally transformed the scene. Add Bernie Nolan as concerned mother Hannah Owens and a highly charged ensemble and you canít fail to get engrossed.

This show might be starting off in Plymouth but itís got legs and is going to run. Catch it while itís on your doorstep.

Flashdance - The Musical runs at the Theatre Royal Plymouth until Saturday, August 2.
