When British rock journalist Nik Cohn was tasked with writing about a U.S. disco scene he knew nothing about, he did the only thing he could think of at the time: He made it up. Little did he know, that piece of faux nonfiction would shake generations to come. Based on the 1977 film Cohn’s article inspired, Saturday Night Fever: The Musical follows the no-good reality of Brooklynite Tony Manero and his disco escapades. Directed by Jeffrey B. Moss, the musicalized version notably forgoes some of the film’s darker elements — namely drug use and violence.
