Dirty Dancing extends run

Thursday, 10th Jun 2010  

London is to continue seeing performances of Dirty Dancing in the West End after the show's run was prolonged.

It is now in its fifth year and tickets can be purchased up until April 9th of next year.

The show is currently running at the Aldwych Theatre, while a new cast is to be established on July 26.

Dirty Dancing is based on the famous 1987 film starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

Set in 1963, it tells the story of teenager Frances Houseman, nicknamed Baby, who falls in love with a dance instructor named Johnny Castle.

It is famous for several lines, such as "nobody puts Baby in the corner" and a climactic dance scene in which Baby is lifted into the air by her lover.

The musical is also showing in the US and Germany.

Group ticket rates are available in London, where the show was directed by James Powell.
