Nothing Is Better Than a Good Musical—Check Out This Original One at Kalita Humphreys Theatre
Are you ready for a theatrical night to remember? Uptown Players presents the hilarious Broadway hit, “Disaster,” a musical comedy created by Seth Rudetsky, and written by Rudetsky and Jack Plotnick. “Disaster” is a new musical straight from Broadway, featuring some of the most unforgettable songs of the ‘70s.
It's 1979, and New York's hottest A-listers are lining up for the opening of a floating casino and discotheque. Also attending is a disco star, a nightclub singer with her eleven-year-old twins, a disaster expert, a feminist reporter, an older couple with a secret, a pair of young guys who are looking for ladies, an untrustworthy businessman and a nun with a gambling addiction.
What begins as a night of boogie fever quickly changes to panic as the ship succumbs to multiple disasters, such as earthquakes, tidal waves and infernos. As the night turns into day, everyone struggles to survive and, quite possibly, repair the love that they've lost... or at least escape the killer rats.
"Knock on Wood," "Hooked on a Feeling," and "Sky High" are just a few of the scintillating hits in this hilarious musical comedy with a book by three-time Emmy Award nominee and SiriusXM Broadway host, Seth Rudetsky, and Jack Plotnick.
Audiences and critics are wild for this hilarious homage to the era of bell-bottoms, platform shoes and the hustle. With larger-than-life characters, snappy dialogue and some of the most recognizable songs of the '70s, “Disaster” will have your patrons dancing in their seats and rolling in the aisles.
Tickets start are $25-$60 and can be purchased online via https://www.uptownplayers.org/.
