USER (09Dec06): Why doesn't Kym Valentine play Baby in London, When I found out she was in the show, I really wanted to see it -but then when it came over here, she's not in it? I'll probably still see it, but it is a great disappoinment she is not in it.
USER (29Nov06): hello dirty dancing baby johnny love sammy hepple

USER (24Oct06): Watched this at the aldwych last week. Wellll, very odd. Wooden delivery, strange adaptation, but excellent dancing and singing. Woudnt go again though, and if forced, would choose a bigger more comfortable theatre.
USER (19Oct06): gayyyyyyyyy

USER (09Oct06): My Mum and I saw the show on Friday and loved it! I don't understand the people below who hated it. It is true to the movie but with the added tongue in cheek humour that is a trademark of musical theatre! The core characters and supporting cast were enthusiastic and responsive to the audience. I'm sure their performances will continue to improve as the run progresses to match the enthusiasm and talent they already bring. The use of screens to change the scenery was innovative and really added to the production! Would definitely go again-certainly did not dissapoint!
USER (08Oct06): The reviewer that left at hafl time missed the best half, their loss. Aprt from a few sound problems, we thought the show was excellent and remarkable true to the original, given the confines of a theatre stage. It is a shame the producers have crammed more seats into the theatre because I have never spent so long in close contact with a total stranger and came out of the theatre with a stiff neck, back and legs. Given the ticket prices, I would expect a better level of comfort. I will get better seats next time even though I will have to pay a lot more. I don't want to be eye level with the ceiling again!
USER (08Oct06): i can't understand the bad reviews either, i thought it was fantastic, great cast, esspecially baby, well adapted to the stage, ignore the wannabe critics and go and see it for yourself, you'll love it!!
USER (06Oct06): This show was fantastic!!!! What were the other reviewers watching??!! Joseph and Georgina were amazing (check out the six pack!) It was just like watching the film. Am trying to find tickets to go and watch it again. Go and see it!!! You wil not be dissapointed.
USER (02Oct06): Why is Kym Valentine not Baby in London? She was the Star of the Show in this production around Oz and NZ! How could she be left behind??
USER (01Oct06): What a disappointment...and on my birthday too. Sound engineers should be sacked, couldn't hear a word over the 'background' music... cast should not give up their day jobs...script seems to have been. cobbled together without much success..audience gave up and enjoyed it as a pantomime!

Sound engineers should be sacked, couldn't hear a word over the 'background' music... cast should not give up their day jobs...script seems to have been cobbled together without much rehersing...audience gave up and enjoyed it as a pantomime!
USER (30Sep06): extremely poor adaptation of the film.The acting,dancing,script all very amateurish.I walked away during the interval.Do domething useful with your time....don't waste a precious evening with your loved ones on this eyesore!!!
