New York real estate mogul and Broadway producer Elie Hirschfeld, who is an investor in "Flashdance -- The Musical," said the production is to open Thursday at The Shaftesbury Theatre.

Actor and actress Matt Willis and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt adapted Tom Hedley and Joe Eszterhas' screenplay for the stage.

"I was captured by the film version of 'Flashdance,' and I am excited to see the piece brought to life on a London stage,specifically on the West End -- the equivalent to New York's Broadway. It's precise choreography meets award-winning scoring on top of a heartwarming storyline," Hirschfeld said in a statement Friday.
