Eleanor Bergstein, screenwriter of the film “Dirty Dancing” and book writer for the musical, says while she was writing it for the stage, she was able to add more Baby and Johnny scenes, more about the family, more songs she couldn’t afford last time, and, most exciting of all – more dancing.
“As I learned how many people watched the movie over and over and over, I began to think that what they really wanted was to share more intensely in the event, to step through the screen and be there while the story was happening. And if that was true, then its natural form was the theatre – audiences watching live bodies dancing here and now in the present – on the log, on the bridge, on the dance floor and in the staff quarters at Kellerman’s.”
The production’s book is written by Bergstein and the North American tour will be directed by James Powel,l with choreography by Michele Lynch based on the original choreography by Kate Champion.
Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensational dancing.
Seen by millions across the globe, this timeless love story features the hit songs “Hungry Eyes,” “Hey Baby,” “Do You Love Me?” and the heart-stopping “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life.” London’s Sunday Express says, “This crowd-pleasing stage adaptation hits the jackpot!”
