Disaster!

Disaster!
Earthquakes, tidal waves, infernos and the unforgettable songs of the '70s take center stage in Broadway’s side-splitting homage to classic disaster films.

Disaster! is a new musical straight from Broadway, featuring some of the most unforgettable songs of the '70s. "Knock on Wood," "Hooked on a Feeling," "Sky High," "I Am Woman" and "Hot Stuff" are just a few of the scintillating hits in this hilarious musical comedy with a book by three-time Emmy Award nominee and SiriusXM Broadway host, Seth Rudetsky, and Jack Plotnick.

It's 1979, and New York's hottest A-listers are lining up for the opening of a floating casino and discotheque. Also attending is a faded disco star, a sexy nightclub singer with her eleven-year-old twins, a disaster expert, a feminist reporter, an older couple with a secret, a pair of young guys who are looking for ladies, an untrustworthy businessman and a nun with a gambling addiction. What begins as a night of boogie fever quickly changes to panic as the ship succumbs to multiple disasters, such as earthquakes, tidal waves and infernos. As the night turns into day, everyone struggles to survive and, quite possibly, repair the love that they've lost... or at least escape the killer rats.

Audiences and critics are wild for this hilarious homage to the era of bell-bottoms, platform shoes and the hustle.  With larger-than-life characters, snappy dialogue and some of the most recognizable songs of the '70s, Disaster! will have your patrons dancing in their seats and rolling in the aisles.

"Disaster! is pure maximalism — a big, old-fashioned musical with big numbers and big performances."– Entertainment Weekly

Do you offer alternative lines so the show can be PG?
I work at a school where we have students from 6-12 grade participate in our musicals, so we often take advantage when there are additional resources of approved alternative lines for shows with a younger cast. I would love to do this show, but would need that as an option or it won't be approved by the administration. Any thoughts about if that will be an option?
