Her most famous project was one of the most successful independent films of all time – Dirty Dancing. The unique continuing response to the story all around the world with its multiple viewings of the film, persuaded her that what audiences really wanted was a chance to be more physically involved in the story as it happened. This would of course mean that its ultimate form should be theatrical. This led her to to reimagine Dirty Dancing as a stage event, one that combined dance and story and music in a new way. It was also her chance to write additional scenes not in the movie, which expand the characters, as well as add songs she had wanted for the movie and been unable to obtain.
