Based on the 1983 cinematic juggernaut that forever altered pop culture and shoulder-baring fashion sense, the musical version of Flashdance stirs up romance, marvel, and nostalgia in its splashy revision of the early MTV-era touchstone. The story follows the enigmatic Alex—a welder by day and exotic dancer by night—on her quest to be accepted to a renowned ballet academy, win the love of her steel-mill boss, and escape the wrong side of the tracks.
Fans of the original movie might have trouble maintaining their theater manners as Flashdance touches on all the soundtrack favorites. In radio staples such as “Maniac,” “I Love Rock and Roll,” and the famed closing number “What a Feeling,” audiences can’t help themselves from singing along and miming rope pulls. The score also features more than 15 original numbers, each straddling the line between show tune and ’80s gem.
Ed Mirvish Theatre
In the 1920s, a blur of vaudeville and motion pictures orchestrated by the Pantages theatre circuit lit the auditorium of the Ed Mirvish Theatre. Back then, the venue’s 3,373 seats made it the largest theatre in Canada, and the Thomas Lamb–designed interior made it one of the most elegant. When the Pantages empire fell, the Ed Mirvish Theatre lost its name and its vaudeville, beginning an era that saw it divided and traded until it wound up in the hands of David Mirvish. Mirvish recognized the elegance in the theatre’s marble lobby and murals, and named it in honor of his father.
