The York Theatre Company's developmental lab of the new disco musical Last Dance, which features the songs of Grammy winner Paul Jabara ("Enough Is Enough," "It's Raining Men," "Last Dance") with a book by Shaun McKenna (Lord of the Rings, The Musical), begins performances Sept. 20.
The developmental lab, which continues through Sept. 23 at The York Theatre at Saint Peter's, also features choreography by Carol Schuberg and musical direction by Wendy Cavett.
"Those who missed the days of Studio 54, didn’t miss their Last Dance!," according to York notes. "This exciting new show is a tale from the 70s when enough was never enough. A joyful celebration of disco dreams, glitter balls and dangerous delights. It's a story about a time, not so long ago, when a man wrote songs for the woman he thought he'd never lose."
Robert Wachs, who conceived the idea for the musical, produces.
Tickets are priced at $15 and are available online at yorktheatre.org, by calling (212) 935-5820, or in person at the box office at the York Theatre at Saint Peter's (entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).
