The seventies were a great time for music and the film industry. It was a time for change, a time to break barriers and accomplish things that had never even been contemplated before. Musicians everywhere were experimenting with new instruments and sounds in order to make something unique and completely new, while filmmakers were doing the same thing with their stories. Then they realized that they could accomplish so much more, if they combined the two fields and use music to bring stories to life on the big screen.
Getting Ready to go Out
One of the first movies to try out this marriage between music and film was the iconic 1977 movie called ‘Saturday Night Fever.’ It was one of the first dance movies of its kind and was not expected to do all that well when it was first released. However despite having relative unknown cast members, as well as hiring an up and coming band to provide the music, the movie became an overnight sensation around the world. It became one of the best rated and best selling movies of the year, on its way to making over two hundred and thirty million dollars at the Box Office. Now that they are planning on bringing this story to life on the stage, here is your chance to see this spectacle for yourself. Grab your Saturday Night Fever tickets and enjoy the performance, live from the stands.
The Back Story
In 1976, an article titled “Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night” appeared in the New York Magazine. Written by British journalist Nik Cohn, it highlighted the Disco culture prevalent at the time. The article would become the inspiration for the movie Saturday Night Fever. The screenplay was written by Norman Wexler, with direction by John Badham. It starred the then relative newcomer John Travolta. The plot followed the story of a nineteen year old Brooklynite, Tony, working a dead end job and going through a boring and predictable life. However, on Saturday nights he would transform into the ‘king of the dance floors’ due to his exemplary dancing skills. Featuring quintessential seventies props and costumes, entertaining disco choreography and music by of one of the highest selling bands of all time, the Bee Gees, the film has now grown to become the cornerstone for all dance movies released since.
A Long Journey
Saturday Night Fever is famous all over the world for its captivating portrayal of life in the seventies. However one of the biggest reasons behind the movie’s success was its incredible soundtrack. Made by the popular group called the Bee Gees, the official album managed to become the highest selling album at the time of its release. It is now ranked at the number eight spot. It matched, and in some cases, surpassed the achievements of the film itself and made the band famous overnight.
The Bee Gees were hired to work on the movie in 1977, after the production of the film had already begun. The band did not have anything to work on, except for a rough idea of the movie’s storyline. However even then they managed to create a record for the ages. The album was released a few weeks before the movie and made it to number one on the Billboard charts. It also made it to the number one spot in over ten other countries as well as recorded multi platinum level sales in the US, UK and Germany, along with a diamond certification in Canada. It also eventually won six Grammy Awards, including the Hall of Fame Award.
Time to Party
During the late nineties, Nan Knighton, Arlene Phillips, Paul Nicholas and Robert Stigwood got together to adapt this amazing story into a stage production. The musical finally made its West End debut in 1998 and its Broadway debut in 1999, where it went on for over five hundred performances. Since then it has been revived by several different companies over the years, and now it is making a comeback once again. If you missed out on this remarkable production before, then here is the chance you have been waiting for. Just book your Saturday Night Fever tickets and enjoy the show, live.
