Remember the Bee Gees music, the white suits, the days when Travolta was a promising young talent? Nostalgia rules again with the revival of this rather ordinary teen rebellion/dance mini-classic in which an ordinary working-class youth finds the only meaning in his life during his energetic peregrinations on the weekend dancefloor.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
Marking 40 years since its famous UK cinema release, Saturday Night Fever is spectacularly reimagined in a big new music and dance extravaganza. Whilst paying homage to the 1977 John Travolta classic, this new stage version promises more drama, more music and hot new choreography, which is sure to have you dancing in the aisles! Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero, who escapes the harsh realities of working-class Brooklyn life when he embarks on a reckless, yet thrilling road to dancing success. The movie soundtrack remains one of the bestselling of all time, featuring the Bee Gees greatest hits including Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever, Tragedy and More Than a Woman as well as 70’s favourites Boogie Shoes, Disco Inferno and many more. Matthew Bourne Company, Streetdance The Movie and Casualty star Richard Winsor plays ‘Tony’, the role which famously rocketed John Travolta to stardom. Winsor has starred around the world, leading numerous celebrated Matthew Bourne dance productions including Swan Lake. On screen he landed cult dance movie Streetdance, and for the BBC was highly acclaimed for his gripping three year portrayal of Caleb in Casualty, until his shocking knife fight exit last year, which was watched by millions. Please note, this show contains adult themes and strong language.
