New Dirty Dancing show to tour UK

Revamped design will allow the show to play at mid-sized venues

The musical Dirty Dancing is to tour the UK from August 2016 with an updated set design enabling it to play at more venues.

Since 2006 the show has enjoyed a successful residency at London's Aldwych Theatre, as well as two tours across the UK and Ireland. This new production premiered in Milan in July, directed by Federico Bellone, artistic director of Teatro Nazionale.

The show is written by Eleanor Bergstein, screenwriter of the original 1987 film starring the late Patrick Swayze, and Jennifer Grey.
