Flashdance's Christian Whelan Recalls How the Movie Inspired His Real-Life Dreams

In the national tour of Flashdance, which arrives at Procter & Gamble Hall at the Aronoff Center for the Arts on October 29, Alex Owens and her dancer gal pals dream of a better life out of Pittsburgh. Meet Christian Whelan who plays CC, the owner of a seedy strip club and the bad guy of this inspiring story. In the video below, Whelan talks about the working-class struggle of the musical’s 1980s setting and how seeing the original movie as a college student inspired his own performance dreams. (Not to mention his crush on film star Jennifer Beals.) Flashdance will play Cincinnati through November 10.
