Written by , Posted in Arts & Entertainment, Theater

Broadway Philadelphia continues its 2015-16 season with “Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage” at the Kimmel Center’s Academy of Music through April 5. The 1987 Oscar-winning film starred Jennifer Grey as Frances “Baby” Houseman, who falls in love with a camp’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle, played by Patrick Swayze. Now a worldwide phenomenon, the stage adaptation retells the classic story with all its dancing and original music, including such hits like “Hungry Eyes” and “Hey Baby,” as well as “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”

Dates and times vary with tickets ranging from $40.50 to $120.50.
