The date is 1976 and Brooklyn heartthrob Tony Manero is a young man with an extraordinary ability to dance. Stuck in a dead-end job he has only one ambition in life - to become the disco king. When he meets Stephanie who also dreams of a world beyond Brooklyn, they decide to train together for a dance competition and their lives begin to change forever.
This brand new production of Saturday Night Fever, one of the most loved dance stories of all time, is packed with legendary hits from The Bee Gees including classics: Stayin’ Alive, Night Fever, Jive Talking, You Should Be Dancing, Immortality and How Deep Is Your Love.
A cast of twenty hugely talented singer/actor/musicians will play instruments, dance and sing in this spectacular new production that has taken The West End by storm. StageArt’s SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER delivers a gritty and confronting truth to what goes on behind the bright disco lights in 1970’s Brooklyn.
