When 17-year-old Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman arrives for a family holiday in New York’s Catskill Mountains, she has no idea how much her life is about to change. Uninterested in resort activities and spending time with her sister, she finds her way to a dance party in the staff quarters, and witnesses a sight unlike anything she’s ever seen – raunchy dance moves, infectious rhythms, and people moving together without fear.
Upon meeting the resort dance instructor Johnny Castle, Baby’s desire to learn to dance only deepens. Together the two of them set out on a journey of discovery, growing closer both on the dance floor and off. But Johnny and Baby are from different worlds, and within time, their contrasting backgrounds begin to catch up to them. Can they defy the odds and continue to dance together?
Dirty Dancing London contains a soundtrack full of classic tracks, many of which feature in the original 1987 film, including ‘Hungry Eyes’, ‘Hey! Baby’, ‘Do You Love Me?’ and, of course, ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’. There are also plenty of tracks that didn’t make it into the original film but have become an integral part of this continuation of Johnny and Baby’s story.
The show also features many original masters recordings among live performances by the cast of Dirty Dancing. Book your Dirty Dancing musical tickets and experience the magic for yourself.
