WHILE THE DANCING WAS EXCELLENT, THE STORY DID NOT TRANSLATE WELL FROM A
MOVIE TO THE STAGE. THE ACTING WAS, AT TIMES, AWFUL, ESPECIALLY BABY'S FATHER.
THE SCRIPT WAS WEAK, TRANSITIONS WERE AWFUL. iT SEEMED THAT TOO MUCH WAS
PACKED INTO THIS STAGE PRODUCTION., i HAVE TO SAY, IT IS MY LEAST FAVORITE
BROADWAY SHOW. THE EXCELLENT DANCING MADE UP FOR THE WEAKNESSES, WHICH
ARE TOO MANY TO LIST.

DANCING WAS ONLY GOOD THING
Dancing and the few live singing numbers were
great but everything else fell flat. Easy to tell
that the performers were dancers and not
actors. So disappointed in the performance.
They need to rework the script and make the
story flow. It felt like they needed to get all the
iconic lines into the production and left off the
character development and transitions. I saw
the production of Flashdance and it was
phenomenal! I wasn’t a fan of the movie, but
loved the musical! The production stayed true
to the spirit of the movie making changes so it
would work on Broadway. Dirty Dancing
directors and producers- maybe you need to
take some notes on how to adapt for

Kevin Patrick Craven's acting saved the show.
He was true to character, as were Demitra
Pace, Rick Grossman and Owen Russell. The
show was disappointing, to say the least,
from a true DD fan. They failed to capture
the nuances that made the movie so
amazing. "Baby" and the romance between
her and "Johnny", we're depicted in a
seemingly caricature form. No chemistry
and awkward transitions. The portrayal of
Baby's character was two dimensional at
best, whether by the writers or acting, or
both. She had a spirit and grit that
developed in the movie as she grew into a
young woman of confidence and passion,
despite her awkwardness at times. The play
failed to capture that, and instead, made her
a comedy sketch. Baby's and Johnny's
journey as individuals and a couple were a
central part of the story, for me. The play
missed the mark, in more than one way.

I too felt like it would be a tribute to
the movie. The overall production
was small with respect to the
number in the cast, costuming, the
dance numbers and the music. The
dialogue with slow, not nearly as
entertaining as the movie. The
sound in the theater was good and
the orchestra was wonderful, thank
goodness. There were a few good
comedic moments that made
remaining for the entire play doable. .
The tickets were given to me by
friends. I'm glad that I didn't have to
pay for that. I am appreciative of my
friends generosity, of course.
Robinson auditorium is a newly
renovated venue that is enjoyable.
There are several wonderful
restaurants in the nearby area.

FIFTY SHADES OF DIRTY DANCING
So disappointing. Not a family show, and not suitable for children 10 and up. I saw the movie as a young teen, loved it. This show focused on dancing simulating sex acts, much more risqué than the
movie. The description should have stated that so parents could make a more informed decision. I would have left the kids at home. The many drunk people in the amphitheater appreciated those
dances, as they were yelling out their appreciation. More suitable for girls night out. Again, the description was not accurate. Only little bits of some original movie songs were included, and the more
traditional dances seemed like an afterthought.

PATRICK SWAYZE IS ROLLING IN HIS GRAVE, YA'LL!
This performance was so disappointing and at times laughable....but not in a good
way. It was like a caricature of the movie and the characters. Overacting was key
to the laughable moments. They took Baby's endearing character and made her
look like a moron. Johnny was stiff and over done with just too much over
Adding in the story line of Mrs Houseman and the MLK movement was awkward
and distracting. To follow the dialogue/script/acting exactly throughout the key
parts of the play, but then add in additional scenes and dialogue was just plain
unnecessary and strange. On a positive note: we loved watching the
performances of Penny and Baby's sister Lisa. Both roles were well cast and well

NOT EVEN CLOSE.
We attended opening night last night
expecting a tribute to the iconic film. We
wish we could say it was worth it but
couldn't wait for the intermission so we
could leave. Not even close to various
productions of Jersey Boys Boys or Mama
Mia. Very disappointed but we still love the
