When you saw an über-hot Kevin Bacon infect a small town with dance fever in the film Footloose, it made you want to boogie-oogie-oogie up and down Biscayne Boulevard with your version of the moonwalk. If you tried that today, a jolt from a Taser would likely be in the cards, which would actually be harder to deal with than a fun-hating John Lithgow. But the talented participants in the Actors Playhouse production dont have to worry about prosecution. Theyre going to get Footloose at 8 p.m. and dare anyone to oppose their fun.
Youll want to start your own Dance Dance Revolution after watching rebellious teen Ren McCormack and friends sing and hoof their way through a ban that threatens to ruin rug-cutting for eternity. The show runs through April 6 at the Miracle Theatre.
March 5-April 6, 8 p.m., 2008
