As street-tough Pittsburgh teen Alex Owens, Jennifer Beals made sweatshirts sexy — among other improbable feats — in Adrian Lyne’s 1983 film Flashdance. Thanks to a theatrical adaptation by Tom Hedley and Robert Carey, Owens is back in leg warmers and dancing like a maniac in Flashdance – The Musical. A blue-collar Cinderella story fueled by the liberating power of dance, the musical mixes hits from the film’s Grammy-winning soundtrack with 16 original songs penned by Robbie Roth. BMW of San Antonio brings to guilty pleasure to the Tobin for one night only. $36.50-$89.50, Tue., 7pm, Tobin Center For The Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org
