Slow, Insipid, Excruciating, Banal

See it if You want a sub-par shot for shot remake of a dated film.

Don't see it if you expect the film to be adapted for the medium of stage, any particularly exciting or mesmerizing song or dance numbers.

Entertaining, Great dancing

See it if you liked the movie. It's a quite accurate adaptation, with all your favourite moments from the film: watermelons, lifts and a hula dance

Don't see it if you didn't like the movie. If you thought the 80s film was cheesy don't see this.

Indulgent, Dated, Confusing, Banal, Excruciating

See it if You really like the movie and want a shot by shot theatrical remake

Don't see it if You like theatre in any way. The writing and directing are terrible, ripped right from the film and not adapted at all.

Entertaining, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent

See it if You love dirty dancing the movie and a bit of naughtiness

Don't see it if You love musicals and dancing. It’s not really a musical, just a few famous songs sung in the background.

London Theatre
February 9th, 2022
For a previous production

But none of these quibbles will matter a jot to those who just want to see their favourite film played out live, complete with glittering pink signs, lovingly re-created details and the famous end lift. If that’s what you’re after, you’ll definitely have the time of your life.

For a previous production

The show is more concerned with the flashy show-stopping scenes such as the joyful ending, when a talented dance ensemble and (somewhat undermaximised) band fill the stage alongside the key performers. Fun and straightforward – in those moments, Dirty Dancing seldom puts a foot wrong.
