It's time to get the white suit out of mothballs as after a lengthy absence and as part of its nationwide tour, the popular disco musical Saturday Night Fever is making a much welcome return to the capital in 2022 at the Peacock Theatre.
The story of Saturday Night Fever follows the fortunes of Tony Manero and his sometimes reckless road to disco dancing success. The musical features a catalogue of songs from the Bee Gees' greatest hits including "Tragedy," "How Deep Is Your Love," "Stayin' Alive," and "More Than a Woman," with this production also receiving special permission to use additional Bee Gees songs including "Words" and "Too Much Heaven."
The 1970s classic Paramount/RSO film was based on the 1976 New York Magazine Article by Nick Cohn titled 'Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night' and was an instant hit in cinemas when it was released. The soundtrack from the movie was released as an album and remains the best-selling movie soundtrack of all time.
Whilst the musical pays homage to the movie, this revival promises to deliver more music along with some new choreography, and also features onstage actor-musicians playing the roles of the Bee Gees, singing the hit songs alongside the talented cast.
For patrons looking to secure bargains when booking tickets at the Peacock Theatre the seats in the dress circle do consistently offer value for money thanks to the good raking of the seats. There are actually very few seats in the auditorium that feature restrictions so taking advantage of the cheaper options in the theatre's pricing structure can pay dividends. Looking for the cut off rows where the premium seats end and the cheaper seats start is always a good strategy as you will often find seats directly behind or next to each other that have very different price tags despite having more or less the same view of the stage.
Generally speaking, the central seats in the stalls from row D along to row M are considered to be the Premium seats in the venue and offer a clear and totally unobstructed view of the stage. Tickets in the Peacock Theatre in these rows will usually be charged accordingly however so patrons searching for best value for money may want to look at other sections of the theatre such as the first few rows of the stalls or the dress circle that are regularly discounted.
