nobody puts baby in the corner


Went to see Dirty Dancing yesterday with bauersgirl  and we both came to the same conclusion:  stay home and watch the movie instead.  The stage version is basically a literal translation of the movie -- same scenes, same dialogue, same dance moves.  I don't really know what I was expecting but it wasn't that.  And considering the movie is 100 minutes long and the stage version is over 2 hours long, this means lots of filler.  The actress playing Penny has the longest legs I've ever seen!  I was highly amused that the audience actually cheered after the "nobody puts baby in the corner" line.  The staging and sets were good though.  I was wondering how they would do the "learning the lift in the water" scene and it was cool how they did it (using projectors and screens).

It's December 9th and I didn't even make it to the halfway mark.  That's so pathetic.
