Saturday Night Fever – The All-Time Bee Gees’ Smash Hit Musical ( 4 ~ 13 September 2015 )
Based on the wildly popular 1970s film that defined the disco phenomenon and starring Oscar-nominee John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever depicts the uncompromisingly sordid 1970’s New York that not only made a dance revolution at that time, but also spoke straight to a generation of lost, struggling young adults.
The story centres on Tony Manero, an Italian-American young man with a dead-end job and an extraordinary ability to dance. Every Saturday night at a local discotheque, Tony dons his flares and struts his stuff; capturing all eyes through his stylish moves on the dance floor. He has only one ambition in life - to become the disco king. When he meets Stephanie, who also dreams of a world beyond Brooklyn, they decide to train together for a dance competition and their lives begin to change forever.
Premiered in the West End at the London Palladium in 1998 and Broadway at the Minskoff Theatre in 1999, the spectacular Bee Gees’ musical Saturday Night Fever has been seen by over 10 million people with over 2,800 shows in more than 20 countries across the globe, thrilling theatre and music buffs alike throughout the years. As one of the longest running musical, Saturday Night fever is still actively on world tour up to this very date; bridging the young and old with a common interest of a fantastic musical performance.
So, dust off those hip-hugging flares, platform shoes and warm up the disco dance moves. “You Should Be Dancing” your way to this jam-packed, dance-crazed, fuel-injected “Disco Inferno”, with groovy sets and disco lighting for almost two-and-a-half hours of energy, music and oh-so-stylish bell bottom pants!
