Based on the 1984 film starring Kevin Bacon, Footloose the Musical tells the story of Ren McCormack, an upbeat Chicago teen who moves to a small town in which, as a result of a local minister’s efforts have banned rock music and dancing. Footloose originally opened on Broadway in 1998 and ran for 709 performances and was nominated for four Tony Awards. A remake of the film opened in movie theaters in 2011. Originally produced on the Joseph Stein Stage in 2004, Footloose remains one of our most popular summer shows.
