The phenomenal production DIRTY DANCING is now playing the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre until September 16.

We chat with stars Michael O’Reilly (Johnny Castle), Kira Malou (Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman) and Georgia Aspinall (Penny Johnson) about the stage production inspired by the hit film with heart-pounding music, breath-taking emotion and sensationally sexy dancing!

Featuring the hit songs ‘Hungry Eyes’, ‘Hey! Baby’, ‘Do You Love Me?’ and the heart-stopping ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’, DIRTY DANCING follows the iconic story of Baby and Johnny, two fiercely independent young spirits from different worlds, who come together in what will be the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives.

Once again DIRTY DANCING is directed by Federico Bellone (West Side Story, Milan; Sunset Boulevard, Milan) and choreographed by Austin Wilks.

DIRTY DANCING originally opened at London’s Aldwych Theatre in 2006 with a record-breaking advance of £15 million, making it the fastest ever selling show in West End theatre history. The production became the longest running show in the history of the Aldwych Theatre and played to over 2 million people during its triumphant 5 year run.

Since its Australian debut in 2004, DIRTY DANCING has become a worldwide phenomenon, with productions staged in the USA, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore and throughout Europe, consistently breaking box office records. Recent sell out tours include France, Germany and Australia.
