Backstage at Flashdance
I have to say – I was looking forward to seeing Kelly (sister of ISAS teacher Charna Lopez) in the show, but I really didn't expect to love it. I was totally wrong! We had a blast. The book wasn't perfect, but I really loved several of the songs, and I was blown away by the voices on the two lead actors, Matthew Hydzik and Jillian Mueller.
Kelly was great as the spunky sidekick who lost her way, and I was thrilled to see Thursday Farrar as Louise. She played Muzzie when I did Throughly Modern Millie at Stages St. Louis, and she is one of the most lovely, grounded people I've yet to work with.
Kelly took us on a great backstage tour… we'll have a video ready soon.
*** Disclaimer for our younger students***
For those who have seen this movie – as you might guess this isn't the most kid friendly show. It's not totally out of line… I'd give it a PG-13. The talent was great – but feel free to email us any questions if you are on the fence about bringing one of our younger students to the show.
