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.
Lowell Memorial Auditorium
Founded to commemorate local US veterans, Lowell Memorial Auditorium's imposing, neoclassical exterior is ringed with inscriptions immortalizing famous generals and pivotal battles throughout the years, including Bunker Hill, Gettysburg, and San Juan Hill. The venue's history hasn't been all serious, however—in its early years, shortly after Word War I, its most popular event was the weekly Bingo game, which often attracted up to 3,000 participants and prompted Life to call Lowell a "natural Bingopolis." The decades following saw everything from conventions and civic affairs to performances by Benny Goodman and the Golden Gloves boxing tournament. By 1979 the building was so worn down from floods, hurricanes, and economic depression that it necessitated a major renovation to bring it into the modern era. Today, its stage is fit for Broadway-scale shows, the behind-the-stage balcony is gone, and air conditioning protects against summer heat and litigious snowmen.
