Saturday Night Fever is a Disco Inferno of non-stop hits at the Orchard Theatre, Dartford

By Lynn Cox

It would be a real Tragedy if music lovers didn't head along to the theatre to see Saturday Night Fever.

The show which is currently touring, is on at the Orchard Theatre until Saturday, January 12.

Trust me, it is a real treat of non-stop hits and beautifully choreographed 70s dance routines and You Should Be Dancing along to get your hands on tickets.

The production is a Disco Inferno of hit songs and was a real treat for me when I saw it last night.

It is a non-stop music and dance spectacular and transforms the classic disco movie which hit the UK cinema's 40 years ago into a live show.

It features acclaimed dancer Richard Winsor as Tony Manero, who is perfect for the role made famous by swaggering John Travolta in the 1978 hit film.

Richard, who dons some very skin-tight clothes and even performs on stage in is pants at one point, is joined by Kate Parr in the role of Stephanie Mangano, who is More Than A Woman when she puts on her Boogie Shoes during the show.

With a glitterball here and there and hundreds of disco lights along with a huge illuminated mirror on set we were transformed into the Night Fever world as the 'Bee Gees' sang live on stag next to the superb band.

The 'Bee Gees' with Ed Handoll as Barry Gibb, Alastair Hill as Maurice Gibb and Matt Faull as Robin Gibb sang every disco classic soundtrack perfectly.

The show tells the story of Tony’s reckless, yet thrilling, road to dancing success, and features so many of the Bee Gees’ hits and other great 70s Jive Talking tracks.

The Bill Kenwright production is certainly a show music and theatre lovers should not miss out on.
