Edinburgh residents and visitors to the capital will be able to indulge in Bill Kenwright’s production of Saturday Night Fever as it comes to the city this November.

Audiences will be able to experience the iconic Bee Gees soundtrack live on stage and boogie the night away in the aisles. The story of the musical follows a young dancer Tony Manero as they try to pursue a career in the industry.

The show is said to pay tribute to the 1977 John Travolta film but will include more drama, music and choreography that will get viewers hot under the collar. Those wishing to head along will be able to see the performance from November 1-5.
