Disaster! A 1970’s Disaster Movie Musical
The platforms are on, the hair is teased, and the polyester shirts are unbuttoned to show the chicest amount of chest fuzz possible. Manhattan’s A-list, decked out in their disco finery, set out to celebrate the grand opening of the Barracuda, a floating casino and discotheque. But much more awaits them than blackjack and “The Hustle.” For the glamorous ship floats directly above a fault line that is about to give way.
Seth Rudetsky and Jack Plotnick’s jukebox musical sends up ‘70’s disaster movies such as The Poseidon Adventure, Airport, and Towering Inferno. The characters are just as colorful as the ones found in those films, from an aging showgirl to a forlorn disaster expert and gambling-addicted nun. The gang belts out era-appropriate songs such as “Hot Stuff,” “Knock On Wood,” and “I Am Woman” as they fight against flames, killer bees, piranhas, and tidal wives in a quest to survive the world’s most disastrous party. The zaniness has won over many critics, including Time Out’s Adam Feldman, who wrote in a five-star review “…I can’t remember the last time I laughed out loud at the theater as often as I did at Disaster!.”
