Photo Flash: First Look at SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, Opening Tonight at Ivoryton Playhouse
Put on your "Boogie Shoes" for Saturday Night Fever, one of the most loved dance stories of all time is opening up at the Ivoryton Playhouse tonight, August 9th. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
The year is 1979 and in Brooklyn, New York, Tony Manero, a young man with a dead-end job and an extraordinary ability to dance, 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. Based on the 1977 film that became a cultural phenomenon, the electrifying score is packed with legendary hits from The Bee Gees including the classics: "Stayin' Alive," "Night Fever," "Jive Talking," "You Should Be Dancing" and "How Deep is Your Love?"
The production stars Michael Notardonato* as Tony and Caroline Lellouche* as Stephanie. Lellouche was seen last year in Ivoryton's production of CHICAGO. Notardonato is reprising the role of Tony which he has performed twice before to critical acclaim.
The production is directed and choreographed by Todd Underwood and musical directed by Mike Morris, with set design by Martin Marchitto, lighting design by Marcus Abbott and costume design by Lisa Bebey.
