Following a successful residency in the West End in 2012 where it attracted rave reviews, a brand new production is heading to the Cresset as part of its national tour on Friday July 11. The show provides a platform for the amazing talent that’s emerged from TV dance reality shows – Strictly meets street-dance as the show fuses together many different styles into one huge celebration of dance. The cast for this latest production includes Flawless from Britain’s Got Talent and Dance Critic’s Choice winner and Olivier nominated Tommy Franzen from BBC1’s So You Think You Can Dance. Dubbed the modern day Romeo and Juliet by the media, contemporary duo Alleviate and Irish fusion couple Brosena all from Sky 1’s Got To Dance, complete the impressive line-up. Flash Mob will be the first theatre production to actively encourage social networking as an integral part of the show. Facebook and Twitter are used as tools to drive the storyline in the first act, so the audience will be invited to switch on their mobile phones and tweet as the show begins. Flash Mob enables you to sample so many styles from Latin to locking, from Celtic to contemporary and from street to Salsa. The production climaxes with an exciting finale that’s sure to see the entire audience on its feet, as it takes the show title to its literal conclusion when both cast and audience collectively experience the joy of dance through a shared Flash Mob. Tickets are £26.50 and £17 on 01733 265705.
