Disaster! is a new musical straight from Broadway, featuring some of the most unforgettable songs of the ’70s: “Knock on Wood,” “Hooked on a Feeling,” “Sky High,” “I Am Woman” and “Hot Stuff” are just a few of the 34 scintillating hits in this hilarious musical comedy.
It’s 1979, and New York’s hottest A-listers are lining up for the opening of a floating casino/discotheque. Also attending is a faded disco star, a sexy nightclub singer with her eleven-year-old twins, a disaster expert, a feminist reporter, an older couple with a secret, a pair of young guys who are looking for ladies, an untrustworthy businessman and a nun with a gambling addiction. What begins as a night of boogie fever quickly changes to panic as the ship succumbs to multiple disasters - earthquakes, tidal waves and infernos. OH MY! As the night turns into day, everyone struggles to survive and, quite possibly, repair the love that they’ve lost… or to at least escape the killer rats.
Audiences and critics alike are wild for this hilarious homage to the era of bell-bottoms, platform shoes and the hustle. With larger-than-life characters, snappy dialogue, and some of the most recognizable songs of the ’70s, Disaster! will have you dancing in your seats and rolling in the aisles.
Disaster! is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
March 5 & 6, 2018.
