An inspiration to any kid who ever sought stardom, Fame burst into the world in 1980 with its energetic celebration of growing up, honing talent, confronting realities, finding love, and living life. Following crisscrossing stories of the musicians, actors, dancers, and dreamers who strive to get in and graduate from New York City’s High School for the Performing Arts, this Oscar-winning musical truly sings the body electric. “A fresh and funky, sassy and brassy, gutty and gritty, slick and smart piece of work.” Boston Globe.
