In FOOTLOOSE, former Chicago native, Ren McCormack is in shock when he discovers the small Midwestern town, he now calls home, has made dancing and rock and roll music illegal. As he struggles to fit in, Ren faces an uphill battle to change things. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. This musical celebrates the exhilaration of youth, the wisdom of listening to one another and the power of forgiveness. The FOOTLOOSE soundtrack reached #1 on the Billboard charts and went on to sell over 17 million copies worldwide, generating such Top Forty hits as its title song, Let’s Hear It for the Boy, Almost Paradise, Holding Out for a Hero, and I’m Free (Heaven Helps the Man).
