Dirty Dancing – the musical

img_9758

The songs “Hungry Eyes” and “In the Still of the Night” will always conjure up memories of adolescence for me.  I am usually wary about musicals based on movies, but the music of “Dirty Dancing” was enough to secure a ticket for me.

I don’t know if it would call this an actual musical.  There was music in it – the songs we love from the movie were definitely played in the background throughout but only two of these hits were sung live – “In the Still of the Night” and “Time of my Life”.  The rest of the musical really focused on the dancing and remaking the sensuality of the movie.  The talent of the dancers was great – they were so fun to watch!  The whole concept of making a live performance of the movie was a great way to celebrate dance – especially to an audience who may not buy a ticket to just a plain dance performance.

A great moment for nostalgia, check this out if it tours near you…
