The Time of Your Life: Dirty Dancing On Stage Now

One of the season’s most hotly anticipated shows, the North American premiere of Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story On Stage continues through the month on the Royal Alex stage. Before it opened, the Toronto production had already sold more than 150,000 tickets. Those who loved the hit 1987 movie of the same name—about a young girl who falls in love with a rebellious dance instructor while vacationing at a summer resort—won’t want to miss this musical. Local actor Jake Simons stars as Johnny Castle (the physically demanding role originated by Patrick Swayze) in this coming-of-age story that overflows with classic songs and thrilling steps. Dirty Dancing is on now at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, 260 King St. W., $26 to $120; call 416-872-1212 for tickets.—Craig Moy
