The film and the play center on a young woman named Alex who is a welder by day, and a stripper by night. Neither of these professions are what she really wants to do-she longs to be in the ballet.
In addition to the image on the right, the music of "Flashdance" is quite iconic as well, including "Maniac" and "What a Feeling."
The play features five songs from the film's soundtrack, plus 16 new songs that Rousuck says are a good mix of "80's and Broadway."
"Flashdance-The Musical" continues at the Hippodrome until Feb. 17.
