A musical that brings back the atmosphere of the big film hit of the 1980s.
Directed by choreographer and filmmaker Emile Ardolino, Dirty Dancing premiered in 1987 and went on to become one of the decade’s biggest blockbusters. The love story of a teenager named Baby and dance teacher Johnny, played by Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze, was set in the summer of 1963 and features some of the most iconic images and songs in the history of film. This month, a stage version of the film is arriving at Teatre Tívoli after achieving success on stages all around the world, as part of a Spanish tour that started last December in Madrid.
The stage version of Dirty Dancing, which is directed by Italy’s Federico Ballone and produced by the LetsGo Company, features a cast of 13 actors, including Christian Sánchez and Amanda Digón in the leading roles, along with 10 dancers and four musicians, to create on a live stage all of the sensual atmosphere and catchy beats of the original film. The musical offers two hours on non-stop romantic dialogues and dancing, divided into two acts featuring a total of 40 songs, including 60s classics like Be My Baby, Cry to Me and Do You Love Me, and hits written specially for the film like Hungry Eyes and (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.
