Get ready for the time of your life. Dirty Dancing returns to the Dominion Theatre in London in 2022.
Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage is back, exploding with heart-pounding music, breathtaking emotion and sensationally sexy dancing.
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 runs from 4 February 2022 to 16 April 2022 at the Dominion Theatre.
What is Dirty Dancing about?
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.
Who is in the cast of Dirty Dancing?
Michael O’Reilly stars as Johnny Castle, with Kira Malou as Frances “Baby” Houseman and Carlie Milner as Penny Johnson.
