‘Footloose’ brings toe-tapping fun to the Candlelight

There is a sense of silliness that comes when you think of the film Footloose. The 1984 movie—starring Kevin Bacon as a teen who’s just gotta dance—is linked inextricably with the ‘80s, a time where fashion leaned to the extravagant (tight jeans, skinny ties and spiked hair, anyone?) and movies ran a bit melodramatic. Still, the story of a newcomer who turns a closed-minded community on its head holds up surprisingly well in a stage production. The musical is playing at Candlelight Pavilion through August 27.
