Just as Tony Manero lived to disco dance on the weekends, we lived for the movie "Saturday Night Fever" when it debuted in 1977. Theatre Charlotte's production of the classic hit is sure to have audiences catching boogie fever all over again. It features many of the songs from the movie including Stayin' Alive, You Should Be Dancing, More Than A Woman, How Deep Is Your Love and Disco Inferno.
It runs through Sept. 25. Fans of Jeffre Scott Apothecary will be interested to know that Charlton Alicea - the store's new owner and one of Charlotte's most talented hair stylists, makeup artists and dancers - is the production's assistant choreographer and also plays the Puerto Rican dancer Tony thinks should have won the big dance competition in one of the play's pivotal moments.
Just like the movie, this adaption has adult themes and language, so it's for theatre-goers 13 and older only. Tickets are $27. Theatre Charlotte is at 501 Queens Road. Details: 704-376-3777. To purchase tickets, click here.
