In the new musical Flashdance, Alex Owens is supported by her tightknit group of girlfriends as they work as dancers at a Pittsburgh dive bar. Kelly Felthous plays Gloria, Alex’s bubbly best friend, who travels down a different road than the strong-willed Alex. Felthous, who says she is “a bit lost at times,” like her character, describes what it’s like to be in the national tour in the video below. See what the actress had to say about “living in her own fantasy world” on stage, being dramatic like Gloria and her how classic Hollywood stars inspire her. Flashdance is currently playing Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theatre through February 17.
