Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero, and his reckless, yet thrilling road to dancing success. The musical features Bee Gees hits including “Stayin’ Alive,” “How Deep Is Your Love,” “Night Fever,” “Tragedy,” and “More Than a Woman” as well as ’70s favorites “Boogie Shoes” and “Disco Inferno.” The upcoming staging will feature a group playing the Bee Gees live onstage.

Saturday Night Fever will also have choreography by Olivier Award winner Bill Deamer, designs by Gary McCaan, lighting by Nick Richings, and sound by Dan Samson. The stage adaptation is by Robert Stigwood in collaboration with Bill Oakes.

The Paramount/RSO movie had a story by Nik Cohn.
