Based on Nick Cohn’s essay 'Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night’, Saturday Night Fever was a critical and commercial success released in 1977, and has come to define the dark side of the disco era.

The musical tells the story of Tony Manero, a 19-year-old working-class man who escapes the harsh realities of life by spending his weekends at a local discotheque.

Saturday Night Fever was produced by the late Australian producer Robert Stigwood and produced a hit soundtrack.

Stigwood cast Travolta as disco dancer Tony Manero in 1977’s Saturday Night Fever and helped make him a global superstar.

The pair later reunited for the 1979 musical Grease, which Stigwood produced and featured Travolta in another career-defining role.

Its success revived the Bee Keys’ poor career at the time, and in 2010 it was still among the top five best-selling albums worldwide.

The legendary impresario was the manager of the Bee Keys at the height of their fame and also managed Cream, The Who, Blind Faith and Eric Clapton.

Later, he moved from music to films under the Robert Stickwood Organizations (RSO) banner, which produced hits including Saturday Night Fever in 1977 and Grease in 1978.

Under the same company, the filmmaker later worked with composer Andrew Lloyd Webber on successful West End theater productions including Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar.

The Grease actor was the father of three children with late wife Kelly Preston, including late son Jed, who tragically died of a seizure in the Bahamas in January 2009 aged 16.

The Pulp Fiction star and Preston were married for more than 28 years before she died at the age of 57 on July 12, 2020 at the family’s Clearwater, Florida home after a two-year battle with breast cancer.
