Before Williamsburg brought back leg warmers, before the L Word brought back Jennifer Beals, long before Showgirls, The Company, Black Swan and all the rest, there was Flashdance, a 1983 hit film about a girl and her dream. Specifically,  her dream to get out the coal mines and bikini bars of her every day and make it as a proper dancer on her own terms. The story was originally envisioned by its creators as a stage play but Hollywood intervened and the rest is cinematic history. Now that story comes full circle with Flashdance the Musical, which is currently on tour in the U.S. with an anticipated Broadway premiere coming in 2014.

In this edition of the Pontani Pages, hostess Angie speaks with Jillian Mueller, who is currently playing Alex, the dancer in the dark at the center of this tale. Jillian is a fellow native New Jerseyan, and still at a tender age, she’s already a veteran of numerous Broadway and off-Broadway productions. Listen in on the conversation and feel the feelin’!
