Nutmeg Summer Series
CRT opens the 2018 Nutmeg Summer Series with Disaster! a hilarious new musical straight from Broadway. It’s 1979 and New York’s hottest A-listers are lining up for the opening of a floating casino and discotheque. What begins as a night of boogie fever quickly changes to panic as the ship succumbs to multiple disasters including earthquakes, tidal waves and infernos. As the night turns into day, everyone struggles to survive and, quite possibly, repair the love that they’ve lost…or at least escape the killer rats. You’ll go wild for this hilarious homage to the disaster movies of the ‘70s, with some of the era’s most recognizable songs including “Knock on Wood”, “Hooked on a Feeling” and “I Am Woman”. CRT welcomes the co-writing team of the show, as Jack Plotnick will direct and three-time Emmy Award nominee and SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky will reprise his original role.
