SiriusXM On Broadway host and living Broadway encyclopedia, Seth Rudetsky is gearing to bring his new musical, Disaster, to the Great White Way. The new jukebox musical, a parody of 70’s disaster films, was written by Rudetsky and Jack Plotnick, stars some of Broadway’s finest, including Roger Bart, Kevin Chamberlin, Faith Prince, Adam Pascal and many, many more. Disaster goes into previews early Feb before a March opening.

Disaster is directed by Jack Plotnick, with the book written by Plotnick and Seth Rudetsky.

Last year Seth Rudetsky spoke to Playbill about how Disaster came about.

"Ever since I read Charles Busch's book 'Whores of Lost Atlantis,' I've always wanted to write a show and perform in it, surrounded by my friends. Well, it's happened!! I co-wrote Disaster! with my friend Jack, whom I've known since 1991, and everyone in the show is a friend from forever ago! I've known Faith since the early 90's (we have the same therapist!). And Kerry and I have known each other since we were in a kids nightclub in the 80's. Yes, she's younger than me. I could go through the whole cast but the point is this is a dream come true!"

Previews for Disaster begin on Feb 09 and officially opens on March 8 at The Nederlander Theatre, 208 West 41st Street New York, NY, 10036.
