Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land will host the Sugar Land premiere of Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage, the performing arts venue’s first theatrical performance. The staged production of the worldwide smash-hit film with live music will play Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land beginning on Friday, Jan. 20, at 8 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 21, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday, Jan. 22, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the show can be purchased at TicketMaster.com.
“As I learned how many people watched the movie over and over and over,” said Eleanor Bergstein, screenwriter of the film Dirty Dancing and book writer for the production, “I began to think that what they really wanted was to share more physically in the event, to step through the screen and be there while the story was happening. And if that was true, then its natural form was theatre – live audiences watching live bodies dancing and singing here and now in the present – on the log, on the bridge, on the dance floor and in the staff quarters at Kellerman’s. Writing it for the stage, I was also able to add more Baby and Johnny scenes, more about the family, more songs I couldn’t afford last time, and, best of all – more dancing. I have added 20 new original scenes, 36 numbers of live music and an eight-piece band onstage, to invite the audience to come into Kellerman’s and experience the story as a live event as it happens.”
