Dirty Dancing Musical

The past weekend we went to see the Dirty Dancing musical. I absolutely loved the movie, it's one of those classics you could never tire of. The show was held at the Artscape Theatre, and has been booked solid for all the performances- an indication of it's popularity I suppose.

As with any musical, it was big and bold and thoroughly entertaining. The only thing that bothered me slightly was the american accent used by the actor playing Johnny (Gareth Bailey), it was heavy and really difficult to understand. Baby (Bryony Whitfield) also didnt really mature during the live show as she does on the movie, and it is a coming of age story. All this aside, the dancing was pretty good and as expected amazing costumes and set design.

The highlight of the show was of course the end scene where they perform the "lift" and the audience broke out into applause enthusiastically. Billy (Kyle Grant) did a beautiful rendition of "In the Still of the Night" and "I had the time of my Life"- that performance was defintely spot on!

Since it was a Saturday night theatre evening I decided to dress up. I wore my Perry Book princess skirt with and emeral wrap top from Trenery.

Enjoy the pics!

A delicious meal, although the tandoori wings were a bit spicy for hubby!
