"As I learned how many people watched the movie over and over and over, I began to think that what they really wanted was to share more intensely in the event, to step through the screen and be there while the story was happening," said Eleanor Bergstein, screenwriter of the film Dirty Dancing and book writer for the musical. "And if that was true, then its natural form was the theatre -- audiences watching live bodies dancing 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, most exciting of all -- more dancing."

The North American tour will be directed by James Powell with choreography by Michele Lynch based on the original choreography by Kate Champion.
