Let’s Dance! National Tour of Dirty Dancing Takes the Stage in Boston

April 27th, 2015 | By Staff

It's time to come out of the corner and start dancing! The national tour of Dirty Dancing—The Classic Story on Stage, the musical based on the 1987 movie, begins performances in Boston on April 28. The show will play the Citi Emerson Colonial Theatre and close on May 10.

It’s the summer of 1963, and 17-year-old Frances "Baby" Houseman is about to learn some major lessons in life as well as a thing or two about dancing. On vacation in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents, Baby shows little interest in the resort activities, and instead discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles upon the staff quarters when an all-night dance party is in full swing. Mesmerized by the raunchy dance moves and the pounding rhythms, Baby can’t wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle the resort dance instructor.

The cast features Samuel Pergande as Johnny Castle, Gillian Abbott as Baby, Jenny Winton as Penny Johnson, Emily Rice as Lisa Houseman, Caralyn Kozlowski as Marjorie Houseman, Mark Elliot Wilson as Dr. Jake Houseman, Gary Lynch as Max Kellerman and Jesse Liebman as Neil Kellerman.
