Dirty Dancing's Shane Harper Knows The Pressure of Taking On The Musical Remake

Shane Harper is prepared for all the nay-sayers who are coming after the Dirty Dancing remake — in fact, most of the cast is.

The actor, who plays Robbie in the TV special tonight, opened up about taking on a remake of a classic movie like this.

“Oh yeah, we’re terrified. Everyone understands that the comparisons are going to come. Our version of it is a musical. It’s a reimagined universe that this Dirty Dancing story is happening in,” he shared.

But, he still knows that everyone watching will actually enjoy it.

“The script is incredible. It’s Lionsgate and our producer and director and musical composer, they’re all so good,” Shane adds. “It’s going to be amazing, it’s going to be incredible.”

“We know it’s going to be compared too, and I don’t want anyone to be too harshly criticized. No one’s going to be Patrick Swayze. He was a legend.”
