Let’s face it, you should be dancing. So put on your boogie shoes and head on over to RiverCenter for a disco inferno celebrating one of the most beloved dance stories of all time!
Saturday Night Fever is the coming of age tale of young Tony Manero who learns the value of life in 1970’s Brooklyn. Based on the 1977 movie starring John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever is packed with legendary hits from the Bee Gees, including “Stayin’ Alive,” “Night Fever,” “You Should Be Dancing,” and “How Deep is Your Love,” in addition to several new songs written especially for this production.
The BBC declares Saturday Night Fever as “Hit song after hit song, bright lights and dancing to blow you away.”
Directed and choreographed by Arlene Phillips, Saturday Night Fever opened at the Minskoff Theatre on Broadway in 1999 and ran for 501 performances until December 30, 2000.
Every generation is entitled to its own Grease, and Saturday Night Fever fills the bill for children of the 70s. But children of all ages are welcome to attend. You and your 12-year-old will be dancing in the aisles at the end, and that’s not hyperbole: At the curtain call, the cast orders you to!
Audience members are encouraged to come dressed in 70s attire. So pull out your best polyester and let the night fill you with warm and fuzzy nostalgia.
