The first preview of This Ain’t No Disco, a new ’70s-set musical from Stephen Trask (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers), has been canceled due to technical challenges, a representative for the show confirmed. The world-premiere production from Atlantic Theater Company will now kick off June 30.
Theatregoers booked to see the June 29 performance should contact their point of sale.
This Ain’t No Disco is directed by Darko Tresnjak and features choreography by Camille A. Brown. The new rock opera features music and lyrics by Trask and Yanowitz and a book by Trask, Yanowitz, and Rick Elice (Jersey Boys, Peter and the Starcatcher), and tells the story of a group of drifters and dreamers searching for their place in the night world of Studio 54 and Mudd Club.
The cast is made up of Krystina Alabado (The Mad Ones), Cameron Amandus (Spamilton), Will Connolly (After The Blast), Eddie Cooper (The New World), Tony d’Alelio (Off-Broadway debut), Lulu Fall (Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812), Hannah Florence (Paramour: A Cirque du Soleil Musical), Chilina Kennedy (Beautiful), Peter LaPrade (The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical), John-Michael Lyles (Sweeney Todd), Krystal Mackie (Off-Broadway debut), Trevor McQueen (Annie Get Your Gun), Nicole Medoro (The Illusionists Live), Ian Paget (A Chorus Line), Theo Stockman (American Psycho), Samantha Marie Ware (Hamilton), and Antonio Watson (Blue Bloods).
This Ain’t No Disco will officially open Off-Broadway July 24 and is scheduled to play through August 12.
