NEW YORK, USA (AP) — Dig out those leg warmers and headbands -- Flashdance is coming to Broadway.


Producers said Tuesday that the stage adaptation of the 1983 hit movie about a working-class Pittsburgh girl with dreams of becoming a professional ballet dancer hopes to boogie into New York in August 2013.


Sergio Trujillo, the choreographer of Jersey Boys, The Addams Family and Memphis, will direct and choreograph Flashdance -- The Musical.


It features a book by Robert Cary and original screenplay co-writer Tom Hedley, music by Robbie Roth and lyrics by Cary and Roth. The film starred Jennifer Beals.


Producers say it has been "substantially rewritten and completely restaged" following its short-lived debut in London in 2010. A separate company will begin a national tour in January 2013 in Pittsburgh.
