Tues 8th – Sat 26th July 2014 – Bord Gáis Energy Theatre
The producers of the smash hit show Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage are delighted to announce that the show will once again set pulses racing at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre Dublin when it returns in July 2014 as part of a brand new tour of the UK and Ireland.
Since opening in September 2011, the first ever tour of the UK and Ireland has wowed audiences across the country, breaking box office records and playing to standing ovations and 5 star reviews.
Producer Karl Sydow said, “We are so pleased to be returning to Dublin where the record-breaking first ever UK and Ireland tour wowed the public in January 2012. The unique combination of Eleanor Bergstein’s iconic story and the breathtaking dancing for which the show is renowned has proven so popular that we are really looking forward to allowing audiences to relive this iconic story live on stage.”
Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday 2nd August. Demand is expected to be high, so early booking is advisable!
Written by Eleanor Bergstein, script writer and co-producer of the phenomenally successful 1987 film, the production features all the much-loved characters and original dialogue from the iconic film with exciting extra scenes added in.
The tantalising dance sequences and brand new choreography come alive on stage, set to all the hits from the unforgettable soundtrack, including ‘Do You Love Me?’, ‘Hungry Eyes’ and the Academy Award Winning ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’, plus many additional songs, making the show a truly extraordinary live experience.
Over five million people worldwide have now seen this sensational production, with the London show alone having been seen by over one million audience members. Having opened in London in 2006, Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage was sold out six months in advance. The show played for five triumphant years at the Aldwych Theatre, breaking all box office records with advance ticket sales of over £15 million, which made it the fastest ever selling West End show.
