"Flashdance" fanatics will have to wait once more. Producers announced Tuesday that the stage version, based on the 1983 film about a welder who just wants to dance, has again pushed its Broadway debut.
The $12-million show, which kicked off a national tour in January, had been scheduled to open in New York in August but now will premiere later in the 2013-14 season. It once had been planned for a fall 2012 debut.
“Broadway is and has always been a tough place for new shows to succeed, and we want to get this right,” Thomas Vierte, one of the musical's producers, told the New York Times. Vierte added that the creative team will remain intact.
