Photo Flash: Kenny Ortega, Corbin Bleu and More on the 'DIRTY DANCING' Red Carpet at Pantages
Christopher Tierney and Gillian Abbott star as Johnny Castle and Frances "Baby" Houseman in the national tour of DIRTY DANCING - THE CLASSIC STORY ON STAGE, which opened Tuesday night in Los Angeles for its run now through February 21 at the Pantages Theater. BroadwayWorld has photos from the starry red carpet, featuring Kenny Ortega, Corbin Bleu and more, below!
DIRTY DANCING - THE CLASSIC STORY ON STAGE is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensational dancing. Seen by millions across the globe, this timeless love story features the hit songs "Hungry Eyes," "Hey Baby," "Do You Love Me?" and the heart-stopping "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life."
It's the summer of 1963, and 17-year-old Frances 'Baby' Houseman is on vacation in New York's Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents. Mesmerized by the racy dance moves and pounding rhythms she discovers in the resort's staff quarters, Baby can't wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle, the resort's sexy dance instructor. Passions ignite and Baby's life changes forever when she is thrown in to the deep end as Johnny's leading lady, both on-stage and off.
