Many films are often described as iconic but when describing Dirty Dancing it perhaps doesn’t do it justice. Almost three decades have passed since the classic tale of Baby and Johnny Castle hit the big screens, but Dirty Dancing continues to wow new audiences at theatres across the UK.
During its two stints in the West End it became the fastest selling and longest running show ever to be staged at the Aldwych Theatre. Two hit UK tours have been equally successful.
The success of the stage show is perhaps the fact that it stays true to the film by replicating key moments perfectly with the clever use of projections and a live band.
If you loved the film, the stage version is certain to get your pulse racing. It has it all, from tight black trousers, thrusting hips, energetic and raunchy dance moves, not to mention the dialogue we’ve all come to know and love.
All the hits of the unforgettable multi-award winning soundtrack are there too including “Hungry Eyes”, “Be My Baby” “She’s Like The Wind”, “Do You Love Me” and “Hey Baby”.
Of course the highlight is the classic line, “Nobody puts Baby in the corner” which acts as the cue for the huge dance finale and the famous ‘lift’ scene which is guaranteed to get you on your feet dancing and wanting to practise it on the way home.
