Synopsis: "Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the theatre comes Broadway's new musical comedy Disaster! Earthquakes, tidal waves, infernos and rampant wildlife can't stop an outrageous cast of characters from dancing, gambling and singing the night away aboard New York's first floating casino and discotheque. Disaster! features some of the most memorable pop, rock and disco hits of the 1970's, including 'Hot Stuff,' 'I Am Woman,' 'Knock On Wood,' 'Daybreak' and more."

The creative team behind Disaster! features choreography by JoAnn M. Hunter, scenic design by Tony nominee Tobin Ost, costume design by six-time Tony winner William Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony winner Jeff Croiter and sound design by Mark Menard.

Disaster! is produced on Broadway by Robert Ahrens, Mickey Liddell/LD Entertainment, Hunter Arnold, James Wesley and Jim Burba & Bob Hayes in association with Katherine McGregor, Mary J. David and Stephen CuUnjieng.

The musical comedy began life at the Triad Theatre in NYC, where it ran from 22 January 2012 through to 25 March 2012. It then transferred to off-Broadway's St. Luke's Theatre, where it played from 14 October 2013 through to 11 April 2014.
