The legwarmers. The off-the-shoulder gray sweatshirt. The hot female welder who dreams of being a dancer. The bucket of water. Need I go on? Can you believe Jennifer Beals jiggled her dirty bits 30 years ago in “Flashdance”?! Thirty years? To commemorate the anniversary, Broadway Across America brings “Flashdance — The Musical” to town this week. The stage adaptation of the film includes all the awesomely ’80s songs from the soundtrack — “What a Feeling,” “Gloria,” “Manhunt” — as well as 16 new songs written by Robbie Roth and Robert Cary. For all you youngsters, the story is about Alex Owens, a Pittsburgh steel mill welder by day, bar dancer by night. Tousle that hair, cut out the neck in that sweatshirt, and prepare to dance like you don’t have bills. —Sara Havens
