Utica, NY (WIBX) - A "tech show" is coming to Utica, being revived after an absence of about thirty years from the big screen.

"Flashdance the Musical" will be making its theatrical debut in Utica before moving on to Broadway.

And John Fehlner, of the Broadway Theatre League, says the show will not only enhance the arts here, but it will make for some thick wallets as well.  The show is expected to bring between $1.2 and $1.5 million in revenue to the city.

This is the third time the Broadway Theatre League has been able to secure a tech show for the Stanley Theatre in the past eighteen months.  The show is directed and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo.  The movie version, released in 1983, made more than $150 million and featured a Grammy-award winning soundtrack.  It also inspired distinctive fashion that became synonymous with "the eighties."

The show will be presented on December 28-29, 2012 at the Stanley Theatre.  For more information visit the Broadway Theatre League's website at: www.broadwayutica.com or call them: (315) 724.7196.
