Dirty Dancing

Aldwych Theatre


Dirty Dancing seems to start on a slow note giving an early impression that it is purely a theatrical version inspired by the original movie, played by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

This early perception soon changes when the two main characters of Dirty Dancing come into their element.

It tells the story of a young girl, Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman (played by Georgina Rich), who starts off being very much Daddy’s Girl and who falls in love with a dancing teacher Johnny Castle, played by Josef Brown, who is a top-class dancing talent with tons of sex appeal to match.

With the two characters played so well, it is inevitable that you will come out of the Dirty Dancing show cheering and clapping.
