Watched Flashdance the movie, it was my first time seeing it.
I was stumbling through Netflix and it suggested that I may like it. Well, after watching the live stage show I thought it might be fun to watch, it was! I could see from watching the movie how the set designer for the us tour was inspired from the movie.
Several things that I loved in the stage show were evident in the movie, like the really cool sliding panels on certain set pieces that slid up and down (stage show) like the elevator scene in the movie. I saw that scene in the movie and my brain went ah ha! that's how that piece made it's way into stage show.
Neat seeing how someone else was inspired. Click here to watch the stage promo video (video of really cool set).
Adding this extra comment after I published this post. I like how Jennifer Beals didn't dance at the end and they sent in a double that looked nothing like her with a bad wig. They even showed her face, you could clearly tell it wasn't her, but the dance was good.

Enjoy reading my encounters in and around theatre set design.
