Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing

After 23 seasons of turning ballet on its tiara-covered head, you’d think that Myron Johnson and his Ballet of the Dolls—once described as “Busby Berkeley on speed”—would find it hard to shock anyone anymore. Hardly. Dance of the Pink Flamingos, Johnson’s latest, takes its bawdy cues from Pink Flamingos, John Waters’s seminal movie of bad taste. Performed June 17 to 27 at the Ritz Theater in Minneapolis, it may not feature any licking of furniture—or anything else that prompted theaters to hand out barf bags to viewers of Waters’s movie—but Johnson promises plenty of “inappropriate behavior” nonetheless. You’ve been warned. ritzdolls.org
