Dirty Dancing—The Classic Story on Stage has officially landed in The Big Easy, and we don't think anybody's more excited than Eleanor Bergstein! Bergstein, who wrote the original film and the stage show, attended the opening night performance, made an appearance on stage at the show's curtain call and accepted flowers from the cast. Luckily, photographer Peter G. Forest captured the touching moment at the Saenger Theatre. Check out this exclusive Hot Shot of Bergstein on stage with Samuel Pergande and Jillian Mueller, who play Johnny and Baby in the hit show, and then get your tickets to see Dirty Dancing—The Classic Story on Stage while it's still in New Orleans. Trust us: You don't want to miss it!
