Dirty Dancing at the Dr. Phillips Center brings the movie alive on stage!
Believe it or not, Dirty Dancing is my favorite movie of all time… call me a sap if you would like but the storyline is amazing! I was surprised to learn that the movie had been adapted into a broadway musical and would be coming to the Dr. Phillips Center! I wanted to share my experience with the show and tell you exactly why I had the time of my life seeing Dirty Dancing live!
First off, the show follows the exact same storyline from the movie from the time Baby (Frances) and her family arrive at Kellermans for a few weeks of summer fun! You get to experience Baby carrying a watermelon to the party, Baby and Johnny’s first dance, and all the way to the epic lift at the last dance of the season!
So what exactly blew me away about this production? Was it the amazing music from the movie as well as added music adapted for the broadway show? Was it the amazing dancing? How about the amazing cast that really transformed this movie and allowed me to experience it in person? For me, it was the entire experience! The cast did an amazing job at taking this movie and making it come alive on the stage in front of me. The music was amazing and the dancing was top notch.
The crowd I was with felt the same, dancing, singing and cheering when Johnny said “No one puts Baby in the corner!”
Overall, Dirty Dancing on tour was well worth my time, money and more!!! The show is here in Orlando until the 3rd, then goes to Naples and Ft. Lauderdale! To learn more about the show here in Orlando and to get tickets make sure you click here!
