Breakdown

Disaster! is a new musical comedy, loosely based on 1970's disaster movies that features all the best hit songs from the decade; Disco, pop and rock. Taking place during one night in 1979, a vast array of characters come to the glamorous opening of NY's first floating casino. Though most of them don't know each other, they all wind up connecting in some way due to the horrific disaster(s) that take place. The show is very comedic yet played in a naturalistic way to keep the show both hilarious and scary.
