HAVING “THE TIME OF MY LIFE” AT PERFORMING ARTS CENTER   Leave a comment

In 1987 a ‘small’ low budget film called “Dirty Dancing” opened and took the country by storm. Overnight Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey became stars; the song “(I’ve Had) The Time of my Life” won an Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy and ‘the lift’ in the finale dance scene has not only become an iconic moment in movies but just check out YouTube for the millions of couples who try to duplicate it today at their weddings!!

Now “Dirty Dancing—The Classic Story on Stage” will be at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on April 12 to April 24 and then will be brought to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami November 29th to December 4th .

We will return to the summer of 1963 when 17 year old Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman, on vacation with her older sister and parents, meets ‘bad boy’ looking Johnny Castle and her life is about to change forever.

Here is the original scene from the movie followed by a clip from YouTube of the Germany touring company
