Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage

Okay so this obviously isn't a book review...

But, I went to see the stage version of Dirty Dancing last night at the Edinburgh Playhouse and Oh My God! It was amazing! If you haven't seen it and get the opportunity to, take it!

The stage version is identical to the movie, with the same script and everything. The set was so simple yet very clever. The log scene and the lake scene were both genius.
