Miami, Florida (PRWEB) February 22, 2016
Culture Shock Miami and South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center team up to present one of the most beloved dance stories ever to hit Hollywood and Broadway in a spectacular new national touring production, Saturday Night Fever. This is the coming of age tale of young Tony Manero who learns the value of life in 1970s Brooklyn. Based on the 1977 movie starring John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever is packed with legendary hits from the Bee Gees, including Stayin’ Alive, Night Fever, Jive Talking, You Should Be Dancing, and How Deep is Your Love, in addition to several new songs written especially for this production.
