The hit screen to stage adaptation of Dirty Dancing beat Robbie Williams and other pop stars in online searches for tickets, according to Google, making it, web-wise, the most popular event of the year, coming top of the hit list. Spamalot and The Sound of Music also made it into the search engine’s top ten, alongside George Michael, The Killers, The Kooks, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, Pink and Tenacious D. The results have led to speculation that theatre – particularly musicals – has made a big impression on the general public. Look out Kylie and Madonna, the likes of Swayze have more ticket-selling sway!
