Oh, What a Night


- The 70's Musical Stage Show

Opera House, Blackpool - 1997 and extensive UK touring.


Oh! What a Night is an unashamedly escapist, high-energy, feel good show, combining comedy, romance and stunningly choreographed versions of everybody's favourite disco hits.


The setting is New York in the mid-1970's. The action centres on the city's hippest disco, the Inferno, domain of the funkiest, coolest DJ of them all, Brutus T. Firefly. It's the only place to be, and to be seen. Everyone's life revolves around Saturday night. This is the one night to put on your best threads, meet your friends, dance to the coolest music on the planet, and hopefully fall in love! Assuming of course that you can actually get into the Inferno. To do that means surviving the rigid but totally arbitrary door policy of the Inferno greeter and head doorman the outrageous Mr. Stretch Mulligan.

The club is facing a financial crisis. The club's manager, Jack has run up some large gambling debts, and owes money to some very dubious characters. As luck would have it, a major Hollywood studio is casting a big budget disco movie.
