Sad news for all you fans of Dirty Dancing. And when I say fans I mean pretty much everyone in London and it's surrounding countries.Now while I loved the movie I wasn't sure how it was going to do considering it had opened almost twenty years after the movie had come out. Once again I was wrong.In fact ever since it premiered in October 2006 it has been one of the most popular selling shows in the West End. Not only that but it is the longest running show in the history of the Aldwhch Theatre. What can I say? The Brits love the 60's.
The show which will play it's final performance on July 9 will then embark on a national tour from September 1, 2011 thru October 8. Rumors have been spreading for years that the show would eventually come to Broadway since it's very successful North American tour that ran from May 2007-January 2009. My guess is no. Just because it was a hit one place doesn't mean it will be a hit on Broadway. Many productions over the years have tried and failed. I say leave it alone and be thankful for the success you have. Most shows don't even achieve that. Until next time theatre fans.
