On May 19th, Virgin/Deepwell Records will release Dirty Dancing, the soundtrack for ABC’s three-hour filmed musical event, which premieres Wednesday, May 24th from 8-11 pm EDT. Produced by Lionsgate in association with Allison Shearmur Productions, ABC’s adaptation of the global pop-cultural phenomenon is told from a fresh perspective, diving deeper into the iconic characters, showcasing their progression and tackling social themes like race, women’s rights and the socio-economic division in the country at that time.
