I was browsing the Star online and my eyes glanced at the breaking news headlines in the middle of the page and immediately clicked onto Musical 'Dirty Dancing' coming to T.O.
This is one of my favourite movies of ALL TIME. The summer before OAC, I had jaw surgery and couldn't eat solid foods for a month. I was in self-imposed house arrest because my face was all swollen and my neck was all bruised from the internal bleeding of the surgery and my sister felt sorry for me and rented Dirty Dancing. I don't know why, but I watched this movie over and over again.
Patrick Swayze is not on my hot list - never has been as I'm not a fan of the cleft chin, but when he stands up to Baby's father at the season-end talent show and says "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" my heart melts.
I have mixed emotions about this being a musical though. What if it's AWFUL?? I'm scared to see it but I'm also curious.
The London production got mixed reviews but sold crazy $$ in tickets so that says something, doesn't it?
