Dancer Richard Winsor is set to play Tony Manero in a revival of Saturday Night Fever which tours the UK this autumn.
This new musical production sees Winsor take on his first leading role in a major musical and it is his first stage appearance since Casualty.
More than 40 years since its famous UK cinema release, Saturday Night Fever has been re-imagined and revitalised.
Whilst paying homage to the 1977 John Travolta classic, this new stage version promises more drama, more music and hot new choreography, which is sure to have you dancing in the aisles.
Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero, who escapes the harsh realities of working-class Brooklyn life when he embarks on a reckless, yet thrilling road to dancing success.
The movie soundtrack remains one of the bestselling of all time, featuring the Bee Gees greatest hits including Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever, Tragedy and More Than a Woman as well as 70’s favourites Boogie Shoes, Disco Inferno and many more.
Winsor has starred around the world, leading numerous celebrated Matthew Bourne dance productions including Swan Lake.
On screen he landed cult dance movie Streetdance, and for the BBC was highly acclaimed for his gripping three year portrayal of Caleb in Casualty, until his shocking knife fight exit last year, which was watched by millions.
Saturday Night Fever comes to the Palace Theatre, Manchester, in January 2019. ATG have a special offer on Band A and Band B seats for Saturday Night Fever. You can get discounted tickets by using the code FEVER at the checkout.
