"Dirty Dancing" is a classic love story with hit songs that take many of us back to "the time of our lives."

You know what we're talking about.

"Everybody can relate to that irrational summer love," said Christopher Tierney, who plays Johnny in the traveling production of "Dirty Dancing."

The show is selling out quickly at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Memphis, where you can watch Baby and Johnny's sexy summer romance play out live on stage.

"It's right in front of you, in your face, with so much more," said Bronwyn Reed, who plays Baby in the show.

"(There's) new numbers, new music...you do get better glimpses into other stories, couples that aren't as highlighted in the film."

WMC Action News 5's Kendall Kirkham saw for herself Tierney and Reed's chemistry has Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey written all over it.

As you would expect, the dancing in the production is fierce.

Kendall got a quick lesson on some of the moves from the iconic closing scene in the story.

Some of the iconic moments though, like that famous “lift,” are saved for the live performance.

See for yourself this week!
