Why Watch Dirty Dancing

  • Watch the legendary show whose London premiere in 2006 earned it the title of the fastest-selling West End musical of all time, with a record-breaking advance of £15 million.
  • This musical is written by Eleanor Bergstein herself, who wrote the 1987 hit film as well.
  • Although the musical closely follows the story of the film, you’re in for a treat with some extra scenes (and dance moves) you haven’t seen before, in addition to the iconic lift scene we all love!
  • Groove to hit numbers from the original movie soundtrack, including ‘Hungry Eyes’, and the iconic ‘(I’ve Had) The Time of my Life’.
  • The internationally acclaimed musical has returned to the stage at the Dominion Theatre, but only for a short 10-week run. Watch it before it’s gone!

Tickets

The show first premiered at the Aldwych Theatre in 2006 and went on to become the longest running show in the theatre’s history after an astounding 5-year stint. It is famously written by Eleanor Bergstein, who wrote the original 1987 movie as well.

The stage version closely follows the timeless story of the film. Set against the backdrop of dance and a splash of youthful romance, the musical beautifully portrays a tale of passion and self-discovery through the deliverance of trust and perseverance.

After 2 wildly successful West End runs, 4 UK tours, and immense international acclaim, this limited 10-week run at the Dominion Theatre celebrates the 35th anniversary of the classic film.

The Story

We would be hard pressed to name a more iconic summer romance story than that of Baby and Johnny’s passion-infused tale in Dirty Dancing. The musical follows 17-year old “Baby” Houseman (played by Kira Malou) on holiday with her family, when she discovers a freeing world of dance, entirely different from the kind she’s known before. Through her acquaintance with the resort’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle (played by Michael O’Reilly) Baby perseveres to understand herself, and the world outside her bubble of comfort. Although at its surface, Dirty Dancing can be described as a romantic tale peppered with steamy dance sequences against a winning soundtrack - the story is, at its core, a study in the perseverance of passion.
