Social media success of NBC’s live musicals (not to mention the actual success of The Wiz) already goaded FOX into Grease and Rocky Horror remakes, and now ABC has its own baby no one’s putting in a corner. Dirty Dancing will get the three-hour musical treatment, starring Scream Queens alum Abigail Breslin to boot.
I totally get where this kid Charlie is coming from. Whenever Dirty Dancing comes on TV I pretend like I know all the choreography too (well, in my head I KNOW I do, lol). He may not know every move, but he's certainly GOT moves. And, if he's this good already we may very well be looking at the next Patrick Swayze.
