SHOW DESCRIPTION
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.
