Age Suitability


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.

In the summer of 1963, a seventeen-year-old girl from a wealthy family, Francis Houseman, nicknamed Baby, spends her holidays with her parents in a boarding house. Her parents named her after Frances Perkins, the first woman in the US cabinet. Baby dreams of studying developing world economics at Mount Holyoke College. After graduation, she dreams of working in the Peace Corps. Baby's father once treated the owner of the boarding house, Max Kellerman.

By chance seeing the performance of the dancers, Baby, as if spellbound, looks at their performance. In the evening, helping one of the staff members to carry watermelons to the service building, she finds herself at a service staff party, where she is amazed by their dances, which can hardly be found in the guest buildings. After a couple of minutes, the same pair of dancers appears that Baby liked so much the day before. The guy who got her to the party introduces her to his cousin Johnny, a handsome professional dancer, experienced in matters of life and love. Johnny is unhappy with her appearance, since the guests of the boarding house are not the place for such parties. The party continues and there are some very loose dances. Baby is impressed. Johnny notices her and gives her a brief lesson in these weird sexy dances. Then Baby accidentally learns that Penny, Johnny's dance partner, is pregnant by waiter Robbie. She seethes with indignation, because Robbie is also deceiving her sister Lisa, who is head over heels in love with a pretty boy. Penny wants to have an abortion, but she doesn't have the money. Baby offers her help in the form of his father's money.

Her father gives her money even though Baby hasn't revealed where his money will go. Motivated by the fact that he trusts his daughter, the father gives Baby the necessary amount. Baby brings money to Penny, but she initially refuses, because she can only be accepted on the day when she is supposed to perform with Johnny at a nearby hotel, she cannot let him down. Baby suggests that someone replace Panny, but Johnny bluntly replies that they tried but neither succeeded. And ironically suggests that Baby replace Penny. To which, unexpectedly for Baby, Penny agrees and supports Johnny's idea. Baby starts training, but at first things don't go well for her. After all, she needs to master many new steps. But gradually everything is getting better, as well as the emerging sympathy between the main characters. Johnny and Baby perform at the nearby hotel at Sheldrake, where Penny and Johnny perform annually.

Their performance at Sheldrake went well enough, although Baby was too nervous to complete the dance. When Baby and Johnny return to Kellerman, they learn that Penny's clandestine abortion was performed by a non-professional, and as a result, she is in excruciating pain. Baby comes to his father in the middle of the night asking for help. Baby's father helps Penny, but in the confusion decides that Penny was pregnant by Johnny and forbids Baby from having anything to do with him and his friends. In a rage, he expresses his claims to Baby that she betrayed his trust. Baby is upset, but, worried about the unjustly accused Johnny, she goes to him, where she asks him to dance with her, the dance ends on a night of love. One of Johnny's ex-women, noticing that he has another girlfriend, makes Johnny stand accused of stealing a hotel guest's wallet. Not wanting to let Baby down, who already has problems with her father, he is unable to provide himself with an alibi. To save the man she loves from being fired, Baby confesses that it's not his fault because she was with him that night. Johnny was acquitted, but still fired for having a relationship with a boarding house guest. And he is forced to leave without performing the farewell dance of the season, which was every year. Baby is upset that, despite what she did, Johnny got fired anyway. However, he says that thanks to her he was able to understand that "There are people who are ready to stand up for other people, no matter how much they cost."

In the film's climactic scene, Johnny, even though he's fired, returns to the stage to perform the final dance of the season with Baby. Extending his hand towards his beloved, he recites the most famous quote from the film, “No one will put Baby in a corner again.” Johnny takes the girl to the stage, interrupting the concert program. After a short speech, Johnny and Baby dazzle the audience with an amazing dance to the song "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" and end it with a high support, which Baby could not perform before, but now for the first time. Dr. Houseman apologizes to Johnny for his behavior after accidentally learning from Robbie who was the true culprit behind Penny's pregnancy. (Robbie accidentally confessed to what he had done earlier during a conversation with Dr. Houseman). The film ends with a continuation of the dance, and the room turns into a nightclub where everyone - staff and patrons alike - dances together.

Interesting Facts

  • Throughout the film, Johnny and Baby always wear very contrasting colors: she is dressed in light colors, and he is dressed in very dark colors.
  • The film was filmed in the summer, but the water support scene was filmed in October. Since the leaves on the trees had already changed color, the film crew had to paint the leaves in the background, and if you look closely, you can see a few missing places
  • The dance that Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray performed in the love scene was actually their screen test dance and was not actually intended to be included in the film.
  • The famous scene where Johnny and Baby crawl across the floor towards each other was not planned in the movie. The actors were just fooling around and warming up before filming a dance number, but the director liked these shots so much that they decided to leave them in the film.
  • The film's lead actors, 17-year-old Baby and "boy" Johnny, were actually 27 and 35 years old.
  • Polled by , the quote "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" was ranked tenth on the list of moviegoers' favorite lines. More than 2,000 visitors to the site [2] took part in the voting.


The film's script is largely based on screenwriter Eleanor Bergsten's own story. She was the youngest daughter of a Jewish doctor in New York, and at one time spent summers with her family at the CatsKills boarding house, competed in Dirty Dancing, and everyone around her called her Baby. At 1980 Eleanor wrote the script for the film by Michael Douglas. But due to too strong erotic background and no consensus found, the script was not finally approved. Then the screenwriter created a new script, where the emphasis was exclusively on dancing. In 1984, she left the MGM executive producer and began collaborating with Linda Gottlieb. Eleanor completed the script in 1985. The main actions were launched in 1963. The character of Baby was based on Bergsten herself, and Johnny was based on Michael Terrace, a dance teacher from CatsKills whom the screenwriter met in a boarding house while writing the script. The film's final script was rejected by several studios again.

Bergsten chose Kenny Ortega, who was a student of the legendary dancer Gene Kelly, as choreographer. When it came to choosing a set for filming, the writers couldn't find anything suitable in Catskills, so they decided to shoot in two locations: Lure Lake in North Carolina and the Mountain Lake resort near Roanoke, Virginia. During installation, it is not noticeable at all that the places are not nearby.

Scene from Dirty Dancing. Photo - Broadway in Chicago

Remember the American film "Dirty Dancing" (1987) with Jennifer Gray and Patrick Swayze, which had a lot of great music and dancing? At first, the picture was conceived as a low-budget. None of the creators of the tape could have imagined that the film would be a huge success, that musical fragments would sound all over the country, that the composition “Time Of My Life” would receive Oscar and Grammy awards ... The film turned out really good. But Broadway, which usually quickly takes successful projects and remakes them into musicals, waited a long time. I was waiting, perhaps, that the picture would be forgotten, and here the musical would “pop out”. That's how it all happened. In 2004, the musical of the same name appeared on Broadway, which, in terms of popularity, repeated the fate of the film. From 19August, Broadway in Chicago presents this musical in Chicago. Its full title is Dirty Dancing: A Classic Stage Story.

The plot of the play is easy to tell. In the summer of 1963, the Houseman family - husband, wife and two children - spend near New York, at the Catskill Mountains resort. The younger sister, seventeen-year-old Francis (everyone in the family calls her “Baby”), dreams of learning to dance and takes lessons from professional dancer Johnny. Dancing classes gradually develop into love ...

The creators of the performance took the film as a basis. Why invent something new if everything is already there: music, songs, choreography? The main musical fragments of the film sound in the performance: “(I’ve Had) Time Of My Life”, “Hey Baby”, “Hungry Eyes”, “Do You Love Me?”.. And, of course, there are a lot of dances in the performance. Everything revolves around them: the dialogues of the characters, the music, the scenography. Everything is subject to the Dance!
Eleanor Bergstein, screenwriter of the film and the book on which the musical was based, says: “I wrote this screenplay because I love to dance. The warm reception of the film convinced me that every person has their own inner dancer. The main thing is to find a way to get him out. It seems to me that our performance helps people understand and feel it.”

Directed by James Powell. Choreographer - Michelle Lynch. Original choreography - Keith Champion. The musical director of the production is Alan Plado.

Starring Gillian Abbott (Francis) and Christopher Tierney (Johnny).
Dancer and actress Gillian Abbott is from Calgary. She began her professional career with Cirque du Soleil's Beatles LOVE show. After graduating from the Juilliard School, she appeared in dance numbers for the Metropolitan Opera's Prince Igor, Moments Defined, and HBO's Boardwalk Empire.

Christopher Tierney danced with the companies Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Les Ballet Jazz du Montreal, Houston Ballet, participated in many shows on Broadway, including the play "Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark".

Starring: Doug Carpenter (Billy Kostecki), Jerome Harmann-Hardeman (Tito Suarez), Ryan Jesse (Neil Kellerman), Gary Lynch (Max Kellerman), Jenny Winton (Penny Johnson) - she danced in plays for five seasons joffrey ballet.

The history of the musical “Dirty Dancing” began in Manhattan in the fall of 2001. The first performances took place at the Theater Royal (Sydney) on November 18, 2004. After a resounding success in Australia and New Zealand (the tour lasted eighteen months), the performance went to Europe. The European premiere took place at the Neue Flora Theater (Hamburg) in March 2006. And again - a full house. Since October 2006, the show of the musical began at the Aldwych Theater (West End, London). The performance turned out to be the longest-running in the history of this London theater. The last performances took place in July 2011, after which the musical went on tour in the UK and Ireland.

Dirty Dancing recently toured cities in the UK and Germany again. Currently, the tour of the cities of France continues.

The musical's current North American tour began in Washington DC in August 2014.

In fall and winter 2015, Chicago audiences will be able to watch the musicals “A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder” (Sept.
