Disaster! Cast & Creative

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.

Show Overview

About Disaster!

Don’t miss the strictly limited engagement of Disaster!, the #1 musical comedy of the year and The New York Times Critics' Pick that the Associated Press calls “side-splittingly funny with guaranteed laughs!” and Entertainment Weekly declares is “delightful and ingenious!”

Set in the wildest decade ever, Disaster! delivers earthquakes, tidal waves, infernos and unforgettable 70s hits like “Knock On Wood,” “Hooked On A Feeling,” “Sky High,” “I Am Woman” and “Hot Stuff”—plus, an outrageous cast starring Tony Award winner Roger Bart (You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown), Tony nominee Kerry Butler (Xanadu), three-time Tony nominee Kevin Chamberlin (The Addams Family), Tony nominee Adam Pascal (Rent), Tony winner Faith Prince (Guys & Dolls), Drama Desk Award winner Rachel York (Victor/Victoria), three-time Emmy nominee Seth Rudetsky (SiriusXM's "Seth's Big Fat Broadway"), four-time Drama Desk Award nominee Jennifer Simard (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Max Crumm (Grease), Lacretta Nicole and Baylee Littrell. Don’t just take our word for it. See for yourself why audiences and critics are wild for this hilarious homage to the era of bell-bottoms, platform shoes and the hustle. From the moment the glitter ball starts spinning you’ll be dancing in your seat…and rolling in the aisles.
