I think I've seen the entire Flashdance movie but I can't quite remember. I was only 8 when the original movie came out in April 1983. It was rated R, so a no go for me see.
Emily Padgett played Alex Owens, the main character who is a welder and an aspiring professional dancer. Her dancing and athletic physique brought the character to life. Song after song, the cast delivered! I sang along with the music and bopped my head to the beat. Act one ended with Maniac and the infamous Flashdance water scene.
Act two continued with the hits and Flashdance story. One of my favorite songs of act two was Gloria. Gloria, Gloria, I think they got your number, Gloria, I think they got the alias, Gloria, That you've been livin' under, Gloria. The last song was Alex performing her Shipley audition to What A Feeling and then joined by the full company of dancers. It was an amazing ending to the musical.
