SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER at Riverside

By PAM HARBAUGH

Riverside Theatre ends its current season with a co-production of SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. This is a co-production with the venerable Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia.

Based on the 1977 John Travolta movie, the musical SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER follows Tony Manero, a street wise kid who yearns for something more than his Brooklyn horizons. It is loaded with iconic Bee Gees disco music including “How Deep Is Your Love,” “Staying Alive,” “You Should Be Dancing,” and “Night Fever.”

The stage musical had its world premiere in London in 1998 and ran for sixteen months. It opened on Broadway in 1999 and ran for more than 500 performances. Riverside Theatre’s production is directed and choreographed by Richard Stafford, one of the theater company’s favorite who also directed this season’s “Chicago.”
