Event Details

Disaster! is a new musical straight from Broadway, featuring some of the most unforgettable songs of the ’70s. “Knock on Wood,” “Hooked on a Feeling,” “Sky High,” “I Am Woman” and “Hot Stuff” are just a few of the scintillating hits in this hilarious musical comedy with a book by three-time Emmy Award nominee and SiriusXM Broadway host, Seth Rudetsky, and Jack Plotnick.

It’s 1979, and New York’s hottest A-listers are lining up for the opening of a floating casino and discotheque. Also attending is a faded disco star, a sexy nightclub singer with her eleven-year-old twins, a disaster expert, a feminist reporter, an older couple with a secret, a pair of young guys who are looking for ladies, an untrustworthy businessman and a nun with a gambling addiction. What begins as a night of boogie fever quickly changes, and many surprises ensue!

Audiences and critics are wild for this hilarious homage to the era of bell-bottoms, platform shoes and the hustle. With larger-than-life characters, snappy dialogue, and some of the most recognizable songs of the ’70s, Disaster! will have you dancing in your seats and rolling in the aisles.

Starring: Justin Batten, Peter A. Belk, Marcus Blake, Thomas Brown, Lauren Buglioli, Britny Cuilty, Melissa A. Doell, Rick Faurote, Dakota Gagliano, Miranda Harrison-Quillin, Stephen K. Huff, Anna Morris, Eric Lamont Newman, Michael C. Silvestri, Shannon Wright, and Lindsay Yarbrough.
