We know what you’re thinking: “Nobody puts Baby in a corner!” But, c’mon, this show has so much more to offer than this seriously iconic quote. Those things include: sexy dancing, tight pants, the tickle scene, more sexy dancing, singing, and I think that’s about it. For all its inherent corniness, the show is a runaway success and people all over the world have said things like, “This stage version is a phenomenon” and other such pleasantries. It’s only in town for this one weekend so if you’re dying to hear “The Time of my Life” performed live on stage you have limited opportunities to do so.
Starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, show starts at 1 p.m. on Sunday; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-6611; olympiaentertainment.com; tickets are $30-$70.
