Dirty Dancing, the musical, comes to life on stage.
If you are a child of the 80s like me, you’ve lost count of the number of times you’ve seen Dirty Dancing. When I heard there was a musical, I was like, why did it take so long? Dirty Dancing, the musical will be at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre Thanksgiving weekend, with four showtimes available. So treat yourself to a show after you do your Christmas shopping kickoff!
In case you need a refresher here’s a short synopsis: Set in the summer of 1963, Frances Houseman, nicknamed ‘Baby’ is vacationing for the summer in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her sister and parents. Always the inquisitive one, Baby finds her way to the staff quarters and becomes enamoured by not only their sexy dance moves, but dance instructor, Johnny Castle (RIP Patrick Swayze). I’m anxious to see how close to the scenes from the Dirty Dancing movie they replicate them in the on stage performance.
