Saturday Night Fever

Glasgow Kings & Edinburgh Playhouse

Marking 40 years since its famous UK cinema release, Saturday Night Fever is spectacularly reimagined in a big new music and dance extravaganza. Read more …

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.

The critical consensus

If you enjoyed the film version of Saturday Night Fever you will love this musical production. You may even head out of the theatre walking like Tony Manero.

This new stage production is hugely entertaining and judging by the number of people dancing away in their seats, Saturday Night Fever will remind an iconic dance floor classic for many years to come.

****(*)Sarah Moyes, All Edinburgh Theatre, 24/10/2018

Saturday Night Fever has to walk a difficult line between trying to remain faithful to the storyline of the movie and giving the audience the singalong hits they have come to see without any real downers to ruin the atmosphere. It doesn’t always succeed, but on the whole it manages to do it thanks to a strong ensemble cast and a great soundtrack strategically placed at the right points throughout the show.

There isn't much here that is lacklustre.
