“Saturday Night Fever The Musical” premiered in London’s West End in 1998 and ran for two years before opening on Broadway. It also had a revival in London in 2004. In 2013, the script was rewritten and reorchestrated for a highly acclaimed production at the English Theatre in Frankfurt, Germany. This new production of “Saturday Night Fever” will reflect all those revisions.

The “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack 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?” It is based on Nik Cohn’s 1975 New York Magazine article “Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night” and John Badham’s classic 1977 film, featuring music by the Bee Gees and starring John Travolta in his most iconic role.

Patrick Bywalksi, deputy chairman of The Robert Stigwood Organization says, “Atlantis has been chosen for the high standard they have achieved with some of the best Broadway shows. Furthermore, this totally new production is  being introduced in the [Asian] region for the first time.  The first class Creative team assembled will deliver a thrilling experience, so bring the white suit out—and your boogie shoes.”

Choreography will be by Vince Pesce, set design by Tony Award winner David Gallo, lighting design by Paul Miller, costume design by Pepsi Herrera, hair and make-up design by Johann dela Fuente and New York casting by Tara Rubin.

“Saturday Night Fever The Musical” will premiere in Manila in June 2015 before travelling to Singapore and other select destinations in Asia. For more information, contact ATEG 8927078 or follow on Facebook at ATEGAsia.
