Dirty Dancing description

Dirty Dancing – Captivating, uplifting, gritty

You’ll have the time of your life. And you will carry a watermelon! If you get what I mean, you’ll have seen the film starring the late and sadly missed Patrick Swayze. A genuinely charming man. This production does the film more than justice, with absolutely stunning choreography. Wow!

Dirty Dancing - The story

It's the summer of 1963. Seventeen year old Frances Houseman, nicknamed Baby, is right on the edge of adulthood. On a family holiday she discovers an unexpected amount about herself, womanhood, the grown up world and, of course, dancing. Not the polite kind. The dirty kind.

At first the mellow Catskills holiday resort doesn’t seem to offer much entertainment for Baby. Until she discovers the exciting, darker side of the place when she stumbles upon the staff quarters, where there’s a party in full swing. It’s no ordinary party – they’re dancing like nothing she’s seen before. It’s raw. It’s raunchy. At the centre of everything there’s the gorgeous Johnny Castle, the resort’s charismatic dance instructor. And she’s spellbound.

Not a baby for much longer, she’s soon involved to a deeper level than she’d imagined possible, dancing with Johnny, discovering a natural talent for it and falling truly, madly and deeply in love.

A heart-pounding affair

Expect breath-taking dance routines and you won’t be disappointed. Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage is a heart-pounding affair packed with passion and full of sensationally sexy dance moves. It’s colourful, vibrant, exciting, thrilling… a splendid version of the story of the most challenging and joyful summer in two fiercely independent young people’s lives.

Searing hot tunes

Sing along to Hungry Eyes, Hey Baby, Do You Love Me?, the classic I’ve Had The Time Of My Life and loads more. This is a real feel good show - you’ll leave with a huge smile on your face!

Don't Recommend

It wasn't much of a musical and we were disappointed that so much of the soundtrack wasn't part of the show.

Dirty Dancing on stage

First half a bit slow, better if you have seen film and new the story. Unexpected adult scenes, but were in keeping with the storyline.

enjoyable and worth seeing

This is not my type of music but I really enjoyed the show. The male lead was a terrific dancer. I considered Sandy to be not such a good danced which made her very suitable for the learning to dance scenes. I was hoping that she would have been as good as him in the final scenes. This would really have been a show stopper. But I enjoyed the show and would thoroughly recommend it.I am inclined to be very hard to please. My remarks on Sandy might give a viewer into the ending so omit if you like.

The show was fantastic - it is a shame the run is coming to an end, I hope I can see it again somewhere. The dancing was amazing - especially Jonny, Baby and Penny - I am thoroughly in awe of anyone who can dance like that! fantastic!

Excellent entertainment!

The show was excellent ! I had been concerned that the show would not portray the key points and sensuality of the film. My fears were unfounded! The show was as captivating and sensual as the film. Throughly enjoyed the show and highly recommend this to all!

Poor choice of actors and props.

Actors were nothing like Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. They had little presence or appeal. This prevented tension from building throughout the plot and for me to identify with them.

Great show, very entertaining, a must see!

I would have given the show 5 stars but the lights towards the end of the show were shining into the audience and were blinding. Couldn't see some of the final act because of this.

No chemistry between the lead characters. Penny was the only amazing dancer/actress. The show seemed rushed. Set basic for a West End show. Expected more.

1st show...was not disappointed

It's the first time I've been to a show. I wasn't expecting the exact story line of dirty dancing. And I wasn't disappointed. The theatre was lovely, plenty of leg room in the seats. The show.....well the if al dance scene with the famous lift...gave e tears. The actors were brilliant. Especially the understudies who p.ayed baby and jonny.....jonny in particular was a fabulous patric swayze. I went with my partner who wasn't happy about going but at the end said he actually enjoyed it. Would go back again to Piccadilly

Main actor Johnny unfortunately spoilt the musical

It's a shame as I really love "Dirty Dancing" but unfortunately main actor Johnny spoilt the whole musical. He was just not the right choice for the Johnny character. Acting, singing and dancing of some of the supporting roles stuck out a lot more (especially Penny and Johnnys cousin). Additionally I expected a lot more "musical" - means a lot more singing and dancing and less plain acting. In my opinion it's too expensive for what you get compared to other musicals!

Very good entertainment

I didn't feel the actors always really connected with their character, which at times made their lines clipped and quite abrupt. Otherwise it was a super show and I'm very impressed at how they overcame the scenes played in the field and the water. Super effort.

Loved the Film

Strange, We both love the film, and the show follows the film almost word for word, so why was I so under-whelmed by the first half of this show, The second half and the finale were superb, we saw phantom the day before which lacks a strong finish IMO, this finished brilliantly just a real shame about the lack of energy in the first half
