If you are a theater junkie you certainly have heard of Flashdance the musical! It is the unforgettable story of Alex Owens, a Pittsburgh steel mill welder by day and a bar dancer by night with dreams of one day becoming a professional performer. I personally have never seen Flashdance before but I am over the moon excited to dust off my heels, don some lipstick, and check out this amazing performance on a date night right here in New Orleans. That's correct, our very own Mahalia Jackson Theater is hosting Flashdance for a limited 6 night engagement.
The thing that has me most excited about this show is the music. I can't wait to hear some of my favorite music from the hit movie Flashdance including “Flashdance – What a Feeling,” “Maniac,” “Gloria,” “Manhunt,” and “I Love Rock & Roll.” As if the inclusion of these great 80's classics weren't enough, the musical features 16 brand new songs that were written especially for the stage performance of this amazing musical.
The thought of the amazing music alone should be enough to make you want to join me! If you are interested in seeing Flashdance in New Orleans at the Jackson Theater tickets are on sale now!
