'Flashdance' to dance on Broadway next summer
NEW YORK (AP) – Dig out those leg warmers and headbands – “Flashdance” is coming to Broadway. Producers said Tuesday that the stage adaptation of the 1983 hit movie about a working-class Pittsburgh girl with dreams of becoming a professional ballet dancer hopes to boogie into New York in August 2013.
Producers say it has been “substantially rewritten and completely restaged” following its short-lived debut in London in 2010. A separate company will begin a national tour in January 2013 in Pittsburgh.
