Presented Jan. 24, 2016, from 11 AM to noon, the Disaster! cast will gather for the special edition that promises interviews, performances and "amahzing!" showbiz stories.
"It's so cool to be part of the very, very first Broadway Con," Rudetsky said. "Will the fans who show up be even more obsessive than at Comic con? I hope so!! I'll be scouting the OBSESSED! audience and giving a dollar to anyone who shows up as one of the characters Faith Prince or Roger Bart has played. $2 if they pull a Jekyll and Hyde and one side of their body is Adelaide and the other is Carmen Ghia!
The new musical (a parody of 1970's disaster movies which ran Off-Broadway in 2012 and 2013) written by Playbill.com columnist Rudetsky and Jack Plotnick will arrive on Broadway Feb. 9, 2016, at the Nederlander Theatre. The score for Disaster! features a songbook of memorable pop, rock and disco hits of the 1970's, including "Hot Stuff," "I Am Woman," "Knock On Wood" and "Daybreak."
