Media Theatre to stage 'Saturday Night Fever: The Musical'

Jesse Corbin will play the lead role of Tony Manero in "Saturday Night Fever" at The Media Theatre April 17 to June 9.

"Saturday Night Fever: The Musical" will bring disco fever to The Media Theatre stage April 17 to June 9.

A Broadway, West End and US/UK tour favorite, this energetic musical is based on 1977's hit blockbuster film featuring music by The Bee Gees.

The musical adaptation of "Saturday Night Fever" is the story of Tony Manero, a talented, streetwise kid from Brooklyn who attempts to escape a dead-end life through dancing. His weekends are spent at the local discotheque, where he enjoys the admiration of the crowd and a growing relationship with a young woman.

The role of Tony Manero at The Media Theatre will be played by Jesse Corbin, an actor who resides in NYC but is actually from Pittsburgh.

"Saturday Night Fever" has been adapted to be more family friendly, with several of the movie's sub-plots, such as racial conflict and drug use, having less focus. A few of the Bee Gee's songs have been added to the musical, including the number one hit "Tragedy."
