Photo Flash: Saturday Night Fever at Westchester Broadway Theatre
Dust off your hip-hugging flares, your platform shoes and warm up your disco dance moves! Saturday Night Fever is one of the most loved dance stories of all time. A stage version of the extraordinarily successful movie, It is a jam-packed, dance-crazed, fuel-injected show.
Based on Nik Cohn's 1975 New York Magazinearticle "Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night"and Norman Wexler's 1977 screenplay it inspired, it focuses on Tony Manero, a Brooklyn youth whose weekend is spent at the local discotheque. His very ordinary life is transformed when he steps on to the dance floor There he luxuriates in the admiration of the crowd and a growing relationship with Stephanie Mangano, and can temporarily forget the realities of his life, including a dead-end job in a paint store and his gang of deadbeat friends.
