BWW Review: Not so Dirty DIRTY DANCING Energizes Stage at Fisher Theatre thru Nov 1BWW Review: Not so Dirty DIRTY DANCING Energizes Stage at Fisher Theatre thru Nov 1
by Anton Anderssen - Oct 23, 2015

Prepare to be wowed by a fun, energetic jukebox musical, "DIRTY DANCING" now on stage at the beautiful Fisher Theatre in Detroit. This show is a live adaptation of the 1987 film, and was written by the same playwright Eleanor Bergstein; it focuses on civil rights, Vietnam, and class conflict. However, I believe this production promotes form over substance: let's hear it for the killer dancing, killer singing, killer songs and killer acting. It's hard to feel sorry for the economic disparity of a young man from the wrong side of the tracks when he takes off his clothes and he is a 100% ripped stud. (more...)

To begin at the end: the stage production of Dirty Dancing brought cheers and screams from the opening night audience of the Broadway in Louisville at Johnny's iconic line about Baby and at the even more iconic dance number following that flooded the stage.

Today's final edition of 'SPIDER-MAN Swings Off Broadway' chronicles the production's three-year run, eclipsing the expectations of critics and naysayers that claimed Spidey would fail to weave his web on the Great White Way. From Taymor's notorious legal battle with the show's producers, to an official closing notice, SPIDER-MAN has managed to remain at the Foxwoods night after night, providing audiences with a never-before-seen evening of theatre - and the promise of a Las Vegas venture in the near future.

Today's edition of 'SPIDER-MAN Swings Off Broadway' features Spidey's time in previews, recalling the show's journey from its first performance in November 2010, until the revamped edition opened on Broadway 183 previews Later. From late 2010 through June 2011, all eyes were on the Foxwoods, as numerous actors sustained severe injuries, and on-and-offstage drama between the creative team and producers emerged, eventually forcing visionary Julie Taymor to walk away, and leave SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK in the hands of others.
