Great interpretation of the movie for stage, characterization excellently presented by Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as Alex and Matt Willis as Nick, and if you love dance that girl can dance...
Despite being the matinee the show was packed, cast switched on tuned in and terrific atmosphere I haven;t seen people dancing in the aisles for a while, so you get the gist. (read more)

As a lover of the 80's and the original movie - I was initially apprehensive about Flashdance. However, with the first beats of music I was hooked! The singing and dancing were fabulous. The story captured all the emotion and atmosphere I remembered and the staging was great too. I loved all of the cast - the whole production should be congratulated. I haven't enjoyed a new show more in ages. They had us cheering and dancing at the end. Well done and I'll be going back again. A great show... (read more)

Went to see Flashdance two weeks ago at the matinee performance. Alex was played by the understudy Twinnielee Moore and she was amazing and so was Charlotte Harwood who played Gloria, Matt Willis was great as Nick. The choreography was brilliant Arlene Phillips has done an amazing job. The show exceeded all my expectations I would thoroughly recommend it. My three daughters are going today, hope they enjoy it as much as I did. Sometimes when you have seen the film the stage version doen't... (read more)

I took my 15 yr old neice to see the matinee on Saturday 6 November. Alex was played by the understudy but I would never have known as she was brilliant. I loved the dance numbers by Arelene Phillips especially the spanish flamenco / passo inspired dance and the Bob Fosse style dream dance. I also loved the urban boys dancing in their tracksuits, one boy in particular I could not take my eyes off whenever he was onstage. The songs were less good tho I enjoyed Alex's mums performance, she was... (read more)

I had so much fun!
The current production is MUCH improved from the previous tour, everything is bigger, brighter and tighter.
Matt Willis is great - I was pleasantly surprised! The Jazmin and Keisha (Twinnie Lee Moore and Hannah Levane) are remarkable as well.
Sure, it's Flashdance, not Shakespeare... but I rather like it that way!! (read more)

FLASHDANCE is a brilliant piece of work. I think that when it is further developed for the West End it will be an absolute masterpiece!
As for the leading lady, she was outstanding, she was certainly well cast for the role! I think her dancing skills were excellent.
The fact that the show and the leading lady have received rave reviews in my opinion squashes the very unpleasant remarks made in this survey. (read more)

Flashdance the musical - no wonder there were empty seats!!!
I wouldn't pay to watch it again. Not enough dancing, Alex did more exercises around a chair, and left the dancing to the very end. The lady playing Gloria was a much better dancer than the lead plaing Alex, and she had a much better voice. Couldn't always understand what Alex was saying, her accent was terrible. (read more)

Flashdance was terribly awful. We thought the lead's acting felt phoney and unconvincing. Her dancing was desperately over the top, and her singing was often screechy and over bearing, making her impossible to understand and very uncomfortable to listen too. Certainly not in the class of the original Jennifer ! Many of the songs were completely unmemorable, and the narrative delivery was tacky and corny throughout the show. It was with complete relief when the curtain thumped down ! "What... (read more)

Saw Flashdance at the Derngate in Northampton with a couple of friends and children. Children aged 10 ,13 .14. 15 and 17 none of us were impresssed. I thought the lead was an understudy and her dancing was mediocre this was particulary evident in Oh what a feeling. The songs were otherwise instantly forgettable so much so that during the interval we commented that we couldn't remember a single tune.Gloria had the only impressive voice .The lead clearly worked hard but mostly we couldn't...

Some of the dancers were brilliant and the singing was very good. The story's terrible, dull and boring. The whole production was sadly a big disappointment. Perhaps it should be renamed 'Flashsong'.
The 2 rating is for the other dancers.......they should feature more and if they were in the audition.....Alex would have been shown the door (read more)

This is a fabulous fresh energetic show - very glitzy but also very relevant to today's credit cruching times! But it also gives us all hope that better times are around the corner! It's a show with positive energy and brilliantly performed all every member of the cast and orchestra - well done all. I must mention Victoria who played Alex - this girl is pretty amazing - she holds us all in her grip - she takes charge of that stage bringing everything and everyone together. Her singing,...

Flashdance, Palace Theatre, Manchester. What an amazing performance by all! Alex shone with precision and elegance, a beautiful performance. A standing ovation on completion crowned the performance and rightfully so. Well done all! (read more)
