DISASTER! is a musical based on 1970's disaster movies with a score consisting of 1970's pop, rock and disco hit songs. Disaster! previously ran in 2012 and received rave reviews. The New York Times called it a "triumph" and "irresistible" and advised "You'll be tickled and, despite your best judgment, probably singing along".

The year is 1979. All the hottest New York City A-Listers are putting on their platform shoes and polyester disco shirts and heading to the grand opening of Manhattan's first floating casino and discotheque. Little do they know that the pier built to house the huge boat was drilled into the center of a dangerous and unstable fault-line. Disaster! is a 1970's disaster movie musical and features your favorite songs from the '70's; Hot Stuff, I Am Woman, Knock On Wood, Daybreak, Signed, Sealed Delivered, and more! It also features your favorite disasters from the '70's; Earthquake, tidal wave, infernos, killer bees, rats, sharks and piranhas all threaten the guests. Who will survive? The greedy tycoon? The aging showgirl and her 11-year-old twins? The washed-up disco star? The disaster expert still mourning the loss of his wife? The nun with the gambling addiction? The older couple with a terrible secret? And will the bra-burning feminist find love with the man who's lost his dreams?
