Mama said decent.. right? dirty dancy UK tour...

MDQ hasn't confirmed yet, they want another theatre but its got a slim slim chance. Plus Aldwych is cheaper for Nederlander who are co-producing it...

Dirty Dancing will have a stellar tour making a huge profit.

Dirty Dancing should be locked ina vault for crimes against musical theatre *moans about Spring Awakening closing* :p. In all truth though this show will make a killing on the road. Is it going to tour to just the larger venues ala Hairspray, Les Mis etc or will it do the Blood Brothers round?

I just had an email about it touring. Not so sure it's one that I'll go to see! I'm sure it'll do well though.

Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage is to launch a UK tour next year.
The stage musical, which opened in the West End in 2006, will begin its tour in September 2011 at the Bristol Hippodrome, before visiting Glasgow, Manchester, Dublin, Aberdeen, Southampton and Milton Keynes. It is currently booking until May 2012, with further dates expected to be announced in early 2011.
Meanwhile, the West End production of the show will continue. It is currently booking until October 29, 2011.
Eleanor Bergstein, scriptwriter and creator of Dirty Dancing, said: “I am happy to announce the opening of the UK tour of Dirty Dancing. In our fifth year in London, it is still astounding for me to sit amid our audiences, many of whom I discover have planned long in advance and travelled far to see us. Each performance, they honour us with a personal and loving response which delights us and makes us grateful It is a special pleasure then for us to plan a production that will have the chance both to visit and thank those who have travelled so far to see us, and to take our show to those who could not make the journey”.

Have never been even vaguely tempted to see this in the West End. Hated the movie. Hate the concept of juke box shows in general. So will not be looking to see it anywhere on tour.

That said, I imagine the tour will sell like hot cakes, increasing my despair for the future of genuine musical theatre. lol

I didn't think it was BAD I did think it was quite fun. I just think for a show that is still quite "New" it should leave the West End to tour. I mean it's not doing amazing business at the moment.

It seems crazy to me that tickets go on sale Monday for a show that opens 17 months later at The Mayflower. I'm sure it will build up a good advance but wonder how many people will turn up a year early!
