Get ready for the time of your life – final weeks in the West End
Dirty Dancing returns to London’s Dominion Theatre in 2023. Exploding with heart-pounding music, breathtaking emotion and sensationally sexy dancing, don’t miss your chance to see this smash-hit musical.
Based on the movie starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, Dirty Dancing is currently on a hugely successful national tour before heading back into the West End for a strictly limited season at the Dominion Theatre.
The tantalising dance sequences and brand new choreography come alive on stage, set to all the hits from the unforgettable soundtrack, including ‘Do You Love Me?’, ‘Hungry Eyes’ and the Academy Award Winning ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’, plus many additional songs, making the show a truly extraordinary live experience.
Dirty Dancing is booking until 29 April 2023 at the Dominion Theatre.
What's the story of Dirty Dancing?
It’s the summer of 1963, and 17 year old Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman is about to learn some major lessons in life as well as a thing or two about dancing.
On holiday in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents, ‘Baby’ shows little interest in the resort activities, and instead discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles upon the staff quarters when an all-night dance party is in full swing. Mesmerised by the raunchy dances move and the pounding rhythms,’Baby’ can’t wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle the resort dance instructor.
‘Baby’s’ life is about to change forever as she is thrown in at the deep end as Johnny’s leading lady both on-stage and off with breathtaking consequences.
