From "Dirty Dancing" to the razzle-dazzle of "Chicago" -- on tour.
Patrick Swayze, whose films include "Road House," "Ghost" and "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar," joins the national company of "Chicago" next month as that slick song-and-dance lawyer, Billy Flynn.
Swayze will portray Flynn when the stage version of the Oscar-winning film plays San Diego's Civic Center, Dec. 30-Jan. 4, and then the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, Jan. 7-18.
The touring production also stars Bianca Marroquin, who headlined the Mexico City production, as Roxie Hart.
