The clueless New Yorkers who must fend for their lives in Seth Rudetsky and Jack Plotnick's wacky musical comedy adventure, DISASTER!, might have been better prepared for the earthquakes, fires, tidal waves and 1970s disco hits thrown at them if they had followed simple instructions from New York City's Department of Emergency Management.

So Rudetsky, in his on-stage guise as noted disaster expert Professor Ted Scheider, has teamed with young co-star Baylee Littrell to alert citizens on how to up your chances for survival, should nature run amok on our fair city.

Broadway's new musical comedy DISASTER! is directed by Jack Plotnick, who co-authored the book with three-time Emmy Award nominee and Grammy Award nominee Seth Rudetsky.
