Tragedy to miss this hit

Caernarfon Herald - - YOUR GUIDE -

FORTY years since its fa­mous UK cinema re­lease, Satur­day Night Fever is a reimag­ined and re­vi­talised mu­sic and dance spec­tac­u­lar. It tells the story of Tony Manero, and his reck­less, yet thrilling road to danc­ing suc­cess.

The mu­si­cal fea­tures the Bee Gees’ great­est hits, in­clud­ing Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever, Tragedy and More Than a Woman, as well as 70s fa­vorites Boo­gie Shoes, Disco In­ferno and, for the first time, will fea­ture a group play­ing the Bee Gees live on stage.

Richard Win­sor, highly ac­claimed for his dance, stage and screen work, is to play Tony Manero, the role which fa­mously rock­eted John Tra­volta to screen star­dom, in a new stage pro­duc­tion of Satur­day Night Fever.

As a dancer, Richard Win­sor hardly needs in­tro­duc­tion: prin­ci­ple dancer with Matthew Bourne for 10 years, he has starred around the world, lead­ing Bourne’s cel­e­brated pro­duc­tion of Swan Lake, as well as Do­rian Gray, Ed­ward Scis­sorhands, The Car Man and Play With­out Words.

He landed the lead role in cult dance movie StreetDance 3D and was snapped up by the BBC to play Caleb Knight in flag­ship med­i­cal drama Ca­su­alty, a role in which he gripped au­di­ences for over three years un­til his dra­matic exit last year, which shocked the star’s mil­lions of fans as he lost his life in a knife fight.

The 70s’ clas­sic Para­mount/RSO movie, with story by Nik Cohn, was an in­stant hit when it was re­leased in cine­mas. The al­bum re­mains the best-sell­ing movie sound­track of all time.

Whilst pay­ing homage to the movie, this new stage ver­sion prom­ises more drama, more mu­sic and hot new chore­og­ra­phy.

It is di­rected and pro­duced by Bill Ken­wright, with chore­og­ra­phy by Olivier Award-win­ning Bill Deamer.
