Saturday Night Fever Is Alive Again in London; Opens July 6

News   Saturday Night Fever Is Alive Again in London; Opens July 6 Sari-strutting gives way to disco-dancing at London’s Apollo Victoria when the just-closed Bombay Dreams is followed by the opening night of Saturday Night Fever July 6. Having first played the city in 1998, the show returns to London after a sell-out UK tour where it was seen by more than 500,000 people.

UK pop star Kym Marsh — who became famous when she won the TV series “Pop Stars” and joined the winners’ band Hear’say — makes her West End debut. Another London stage debutante is Shaun Williamson, star of the soap opera “EastEnders” (his TV character was pushed off a cliff which left him conveniently free for diving into stage work). Williamson plays DJ Monty, Marsh is Annette, with Stephane Anelli as Tony Manero, the role created by John Travolta in the classic 1977 movie. As in the film, the score is peppered with disco classics by the Bee Gees, including “Stayin’ Alive,” “Night Fever,” “How Deep Is Your Love,” “You Should Be Dancing,” “If I Can’t Have You,” “Tragedy,” “Disco Inferno” and “Jive Talkin’”.

Robert Stigwood produces in association with Adam Spiegel. Arlene Phillips directs and choreographs, with Karen Bruce as associate director. Set and costume designs are by Eamon D’Arcy, lighting is by Gavan Swift, sound by Mick Potter and orchestrations by Nigel Wright.
