Preview: Saturday Night Fever (Broadway at Duke)

December 1, 2003 - Durham, NC:


Saturday Night Fever (Broadway at Duke, 8 p.m. Dec. 3 in Page Auditorium on Duke University's West Campus in Durham, NC) is Troika Entertainment's current touring production of the Broadway musical based on the 1977 film starring John Travolta as aimless Brooklyn street kid-turned-white-suited disco king Tony Manero. The film's legendary Bee Gees soundtrack, which helped launch the disco-dancing craze, included "Stayin' Alive," "If I Can't Have You," "Night Fever," "Jive Talkin'," "You Should Be Dancing," and "How Deep Is Your Love?" Adapted for the stage by Tony Award® nominee Nan Knighton (The Scarlet Pimpernel), in collaboration with Arlene Phillips, Paul Nicholas, and Robert Stigwood, Saturday Night Fever is directed and choreographed by Arlene Phillips. This high-octane dance musical debuted in London in 1998 and premiered in New York in 1999.
