Disaster! at The Little Theatre
Takes place in 1979 Manhattan during opening night of the Barracuda, the first floating casino and discotheque in New York. The characters gather to gamble and dance, unaware of impending natural disasters, and the building’s lack of safety measures compounds these catastrophes. Notably, the casino’s structure was built on a fault line, which causes earthquakes throughout the show. The plot follows several characters’ dynamics and interactions throughout the opening night as they deal with various plot elements reminiscent of 1970s disaster cult films such as “The Poseidon Adventure” and “Airport 1975.” Along with earthquakes, the show is filled with tidal waves, infernos and the songs of the 70s.
