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 discothèque. Disaster! features some of the most memorable pop, rock and disco hits of the 1970s, including "Hot Stuff," "I Am Woman," "Knock on Wood," "Daybreak" and more. The outrageous cast stars past Tony Award® nominees and winners Roger Bart, Kerry Butler, Kevin Chamberlin, Adam Pascal, Faith Prince, and Rachel York.


  • Musical theatre maven Seth Rudetsky, known for hisPlaybill column and Sirius/XM Satellite Radio shows, is not only featured in the cast; he is also the musical’s co-librettist, with director Jack Plotnick.
  • The show gleefully parodies a number of 1970s disaster movies.


The musical debuted at New York's Triad Theatre in January, 2012. The show moved Off Broadway to St. Luke's Theatre where it played from October 2013 through the following April.
