Having delighted audiences this spring at the Dominion Theatre, Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage finishes its limited run on Saturday 29th April before heading out on a UK & Ireland tour, opening at the New Wimbledon Theatre on Thursday 25th May.
Michael O’Reilly (West Side Story, Leicester Curve; Matthew Bourne’s Lord of the Flies, Theatre Royal Plymouth) and Kira Malou (Fame, Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre; Penny on Mars, Disney Plus) will reprise their roles as Johnny and Baby on tour, with further cast to be announced.
Producer Karl Sydow says, I am thrilled about the success of the second Dominion Theatre season and to be going out on tour for the fifth time since 2011.
Exploding with heart-pounding music, breathtaking emotion and sensationally sexy dancing, this triumphant stage production, inspired by the wildly popular film, follows the iconic story of Baby and Johnny. Featuring the hit songs ‘Hungry Eyes’, ‘Hey! Baby’, ‘Do You Love Me?’ and the heart-stopping ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’.
Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage, written by Eleanor Bergstein, is directed by Federico Bellone (West Side Story, Milan; Sunset Boulevard, Milan) and choreographed by Austin Wilks (Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage, UK tour and Dominion Theatre).
The creative team are completed by Costume Designer Jennifer Irwin, Lighting Designer Valerio Tiberi, Sound Designer Chris Whybrow, Music Supervisor Conrad Helfrich and Supervising Musical Director Richard John.
