By the tail end of the '90s, everything was grist for the pop culture mill, which recycled and redefined itself at an alarming rate, especially in the world of musical theater. In the '80s, FOOTLOOSE was a cheesy teen movie starring the notoriously ubiquitous Kevin Bacon as a rebel in a small town whose only cause seems to be a sock hop. Nearly 15 years later, FOOTLOOSE had been transformed into a successful Broadway musical, where the somewhat dubious plot took a backseat to elaborate dance numbers and, of course, songs. The original FOOTLOOSE soundtrack featured hits by Kenny Loggins and Deniece Williams that were pure '80s pop at its most unapologetic. A bit of the synthesized '80s sheen has been sanded off for the stage, and there's more traditional-sounding Broadway-style music here than you might expect, but if the songs grabbed you in their original form, you'll find whole different side to that material as presented here.
