“Saturday Night Fever – The Musical” comes to the Alberta Bair Theater stage at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan.28. Fewer than 350 tickets remain for this story of Tony, the kid from Brooklyn, who wants to dance his way to a better life.
This all-new production shares Tony’s love for dancing in spectacular new ways. Fueled by vintage Bee Gee hits, this contemporary retelling of the classic story captures the energy, passion and life-changing moments that have thrilled audiences since 1977.
Now, a new generation of talented actors/singers/dancers meets a new generation of theatregoers to explore the soaring sounds and pulsating rhythms of this coming-of-age disco fantasy.
Based on Nik Cohn’s 1975 New York Magazine article, “Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night,” and Norman Wexler’s hit 1977 film “Saturday Night Fever,” the musical features almost all of the songs from the original movie sound track.
The album spent 24 weeks on the top of the U.S. album charts and stayed on the charts until March 1980. In 1979 it won a Grammy as Album of the Year. In 2003 it reached no. 131 on Rolling Stone’s list of “500 best albums of all time.”
“Saturday Night Fever – The Musical,” presented by NorthCore Productions and 2 Luck Concepts LLC, is directed by Marcia Kash with choreography by Marc Kimelman and music direction by Steve Thomas.
