Saw Flashdance the Musical last night at the Patchogue theater. It was very entertaining and well staged. The lead, Julia Macchio was fantastic and the entire caste was wonderful as well! Will be returning for future shows!

My husband and I love live performances, and have enjoyed Gateway productions, both in Bellport and at the Patchogue Theatre. Flashdance was exciting and fun. It was great watching Julia Macchio perform. All of the performers were great.

In our many years of attending Gateway performances we think Cabaret was the best show ever. Josh Canfield’s performance was outstanding. We had seen Gateway’s Memphis the month before in which Josh had a major role and we thought that was great until we saw...More
