The production, directed by Darko Tresnjak and choreographed by Camille A. Brown, will officially open Off-Broadway July 24 .
This Ain’t No Disco features music and lyrics by Trask and Yanowitz and a book by Trask, Yanowitz, and Rick Elice (Jersey Boys, Peter and the Starcatcher). The musical tells the story of a group of drifters and dreamers searching for their place in the night world of Studio 54 and Mudd Club. In a city where one’s fate can turn on a dime bag, every decision is fateful.
