Synopsis: "Set against the grit, the garbage strikes, the graffiti of 1979 New York City, This Ain't No Disco tells the story of drifters and dreamers searching for their place in the night world of Studio 54 and Mudd Club. In their uptown/downtown quest for revelry and kinship, every decision is fateful in a city where one's fate can turn on a dime bag."

Under the direction of Darko Tresnjak, the creative team behind This Ain't No Disco features choreography by Camille A. Brown, musical direction by Darius Smith, scenic design by Jason Sherwood, costume design by Sarah Laux, lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design by Emily Lazar, and projection design by Aaron Rhyne.

This Ain't No Disco is produced by Atlantic Theater Company in co-operation with Miramax.
