Disaster at Nederlander Theatre

Everything that can go wrong will go wrong in Seth Rudetsky and Jack Plotnick's Disaster!, a raucously silly spoof of the 1970's favorite breed of blockbuster - the disaster movie. Ramping up the cheese to dangerous levels, this jukebox musical soundtracks the ever-escalating action with some of the decade's smoothest numbers, including 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours' by Stevie Wonder and Barry Manilow's 'Daybreak'.
Disaster! was gleefully received by the critics during its Off-Broadway run in 2013, with Time Out New York's Adam Feldman writing "I can't remember the last time I laughed out loud at the theater as often as I did at Disaster!" Among the top draw cast for this Broadway production are Tony winners Roger Bart (The Producers) & Faith Prince (Annie), as well as Drama Desk Award winner Rachel York (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels).
What is disaster! About?
The year is 1979, and a group of young A-listers are heading out for a night of boogie-making at Manhattan's newly-opened floating disco. Little do they know that the scurrilous owner has cut some corners when it comes to safety measures, and the disco is not going to stay afloat for long, especially in the face of earthquakes, tidal waves and piranhas. Can this band of prima donnas make it through this escalating series of disasters? And if they don't, whose death will be the most hilarious?
