Flashdance-The Musical is the stage adaptation of the 1983 hit film that defined a generation. The anticipated production took place at The Fox Theatre from February 5-10 as part of the Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Atlanta 2012/2013 season.
What very few people know about this production is that it features one of our own talented local artists. Lynorris Evans who is part of the Ensemble cast is a graduate of Fordham University, and he was last seen on the 1st national tour of Memphis the Musical. But, his biggest role to date, was his starring role as a Tri-Cities student.
Lynorris Evans took time from his rehearsal schedule before the closing night of the musical to answer a few questions from Cascade Patch.
1) What are your fondest memories at Tri-Cities HS?
Having guest alumni coming back and sharing their stories about life after high school. It made me believe I could achieve my dreams as well.
2) What has been the most important lesson you have learned since leaving Atlanta?
Your work ethics play an important part in everything that you do.
3) What is the secret to a winning audition performance?
There is no secret. I would just say go to the audition and have fun. Don't put to much pressure on yourself, try to relax and show what you can bring to the table.
4) What is your favorite part/thing/memory of SW Atlanta?
My friends and family.
5) Tell us about your role in "Flashdance" and how it is to work on such a big production.
I am an ensemble member/understudy of Joe and Andy in Flashdance. I'm throughout the show singing, dancing and acting. It's a thrill to be apart of this production and just the opportunity to work with so many amazingly talented people.
