“As I learned how many people watched the movie over and over and over,” said Eleanor Bergstein, screenwriter of the film “Dirty Dancing” and book writer for the production, “I began to think that what they really wanted was to share more physically in the event, to step through the screen and be there while the story was happening. We have added 20 new original scenes and 36 numbers of live music played by an eight-piece band onstage, which invites the audience to experience the story in a whole new way as a live event.”

The production is directed by Sarna Lapine and the band is led by conductor Alan J. Plado and associate conductor Jonathan Marro. Choreography is by Michele Lynch, based on the original choreography by Kate Champion.

“‘Dirty Dancing’ is one of our most beloved and timeless properties,” said Sandra Stern, Lionsgate Television Group president. “We’re delighted to participate in the latest stage incarnation that will introduce ‘Dirty Dancing’ to a whole new generation of fans.”

“Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage” is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensational dancing. Seen by millions across the globe, this timeless love story features the hit songs “Hungry Eyes,” “Hey Baby,” “Do You Love Me?” and the heart-stopping “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”

The North American tour is produced by Amber Jacobsen, NETworks Presentations, LLC and Col Joye in association with Magic Hour Productions and Lionsgate.
