The iconic story of Tony, a kid from Brooklyn USA who wants to dance his way to a better life, is back in this brand-new national tour that shares Tony’s love of dancing in spectacular new ways. Fueled by vintage Bee Gee hits including “Stayin’ Alive,” “Night Fever,” “Disco Inferno,” and more, this contemporary retelling of the classic story captures the energy, passion and life-changing moments that have thrilled movie audiences since 1977. Now, a new generation of dancers meets a new generation of playgoers to explore the soaring sounds and pulsating rhythms of a coming-of-age disco fantasy.
