DIRTY DANCING can take any mediocre evening, turn it on its head, and bring an entire crowd to its feet.  This beloved tale is literally sweeping the nation, and thankfully, it rode the wind straight into Cincinnati! 

The power of music can often be inspiring, and paired with immaculate dance arrangements and spectacular visual effects, this production is nothing short of pure magic. 

Jillian Mueller and Samuel Pergande perform the roles of "Baby" and Johnny Castle with an almost whimsical, charismatic air that transfers onto the stage as pulsating electricity.  They pair together beautifully, often moving as intuitively as one unit. 

The vocals also add a spectacular depth to this musical, especially with the striking instruments of Jennlee Shallow and Doug Carpenter, as Elizabeth and Billy Kostecki.  Carpenter's rendition of "In The Still Of The Night" was absolutely mesmerizing. 

DIRTY DANCING is a production that seems to evoke powerful memories within the audience, bringing everyone back to that unforgettable moment when they first heard "Nobody puts Baby in a corner!"  Be sure to get your tickets early, to relive this classic story, blended with exciting new moments to bring this unforgettable tale to life.
