Disaster!, the critically-acclaimed 1970s disaster movie musical now playing off-Broadway at the St. Luke’s Theatre, will welcome David Hibbard (Billy Elliot, Cats), Max Crumm (Grease) and as previously announced Judy Gold to the show in February. Hibbard will begin performances as Tony February 4, Crumm as Scott on February 14 and Gold as Shirley on February 10.
Directed and cowritten by Jack Plotnick and starring co-creator and co-writer Seth Rudetsky, Disaster! is set on a summer night in Manhattan in 1979 and follows a group of NYC A-listers who party at the grand opening of a floating casino/disco—until disaster strikes. Earthquakes, tidal waves, infernos, killer bees, rats, sharks and piranhas all threaten the guests, who sing some of the biggest hits of the ‘70s, including “Hot Stuff,” “I Am Woman,” “Knock on Wood” and more.
The cast of Disaster! also includes features Haven Burton, Charity Dawson, Matt Farcher, Tom Riis Farrell, Stace Oristano, Jennifer Simard, Jonah Verdon, Sherz Aletaha, Saum Eskandani and Maggie McDowell.
