This month, Saturday Night Fever is coming to Bradford Alhambra.
The classic film is reimagined for the stage, but still contains the Bee Gees’ greatest hits including Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever, Tragedy and More Than a Woman. For the first time, the production will feature a group playing the Bee Gees live on stage. It makes such a huge difference when there’s a live band, so this is really exciting news.
The new production has been produced by Bill Kenwright (who other?) by special arrangement with The Robert Stigwood Organisation – promising lots of great music and thrilling choreography.
Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero, and his exciting road to dancing success. Filling the huuuuge shoes of John Travolta is Richard Winsor. It’s his first leading role in a musical, but Richard is no stranger to performance.
He was the principle dancer with Matthew Bourne for ten years, performing in several highly-acclaimed shows. He then played Caleb Knight in Casualty for three years. So whether you’re a dance fan or a soap fan, chances are you’ve come across Richard Windsor in one talented guise or another!
I think this show will be so much fun – a lovely middle ground for those who love dance, 70s music or just a fab old boogie.
Catch Saturday Night Fever at Bradford Alhambra from 20th-24th November.
