The iconic story of Tony Manero, the kid from Brooklyn who wants to dance his way to a better life, is back! An all-new stage production of Saturday Night Fever – The Musical comes to the Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater Friday, March 17 at 8 p.m.
Fueled by the Bee Gees’ timeless 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 actor/singer/dancers meets a new generation of theater-goers 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 includes nearly all of the songs from the original movie soundtrack. The album spent a record-breaking 24 weeks on the top of the U.S. chart. Tickets may be purchased online at themahaffey.com, charge by phone at 727.893.7832 or in person at The Mahaffey Theater Box Office.
