Musical of 'Flashdance' delays Broadway bowApril 25, 2013 @ 8:49 am
NEW YORK (AP) - The stage adaptation of the 1983 hit movie "Flashdance" has taken a slight stutter step on the way to Broadway.
Citing an inability to find a theater, producers said Thursday that the show, originally intended to reach New York by August, will make it next season instead.
Said producer Tom Viertel: "We will take this time to refine the production."
A version of the musical about a working-class Pittsburgh steel mill welder with dreams of becoming a ballet dancer has been touring the U.S. It's now in Portland.
It features a book by Robert Cary and Tom Hedley, music by Robbie Roth and lyrics by Cary and Roth. The score includes the hits "Flashdance _ What a Feeling" and "Maniac" as well as 16 new songs.
