What Is Disaster! A Musical Like? Disaster! is a parody style musical of disaster movies from the 1970s, such as Airport 1975 and The Poseidon Adventure. This Broadway show takes place aboard a floating casino boat that is sequentially struck with a series of catastrophe including an earthquake, a gigantic tidal wave, an inferno and a huge swarm of bees. The show is self-consciously ditsy, featuring an outrageous cast dancing and singing the night away afloat the sailing casino and discotheque, despite the series of crazy accidents that hit them. The choreography is done by Joann M. Hunter, who also choreographed On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, Curtains and the huge seller School of Rock – the Musical. Using popular songs from the time period including hits like Knock on Wood and Hot Stuff , Disaster! pays comic tribute to the iconic disaster movies of the 1970s, ensuring a very fun night in the theatre.
Is Disaster! A Musical Good for Kids? The show may be inappropriate for children ages 9 and under due to moderate language. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
