Enjoy an Exclusive interview with Katie & Co-Star Lewis @ Dirty Dancing:
Following two West End runs & UK tours, Dirty Dancing is back having had a 2016 make-over.
Based on the iconic 1987 film, Baby Houseman and Johnny Castle’s love story continues to pull huge audiences world wide.
It’s fair to say this is a ‘girls night out’ musical. There’s plenty of flesh/guns on offer throughout to the whooping delight of the sell out crowd. This is not Shakespeare!
Inevitably this show is ‘in’. The crowd tonight at the glorious Manchester Palace Theatre were a step ahead of the script throughout. I guess that’s the joy of such a loved & iconic story.
If the ladies weren’t dizzy with excitement, they were certainly woozy after 3 hours of the constantly revolving set! Good lord. There’s more door slamming than a 20’s farce!
Meanwhile Lewis Griffiths singlehandedly steals the show. It’s a killer 5* master-class in performance. Such a unique, exhausting & mammoth role delivered to perfection.
Griffiths IS Johnny Castle and the best I’ve ever seen cast in this role. He’s a stunning dancer with Broadway passion. He oozes effortless warmth, charm and clear sex appeal that the audience adored.
If you liked the film you’ll LOVE Dirty Dancing The Musical!
Dirty Dancing will be back in the West End this Christmas. BOOK TICKETS HERE!
