Set against the grit, the garbage strikes and the graffiti of 1979 New York City, This Ain’t No Disco tells the story of drifters and dreamers searching for their place in the night world of Studio 54 and Mudd Club. In their uptown / downtown quest for revelry and kinship, every decision is fateful in a city where one’s fate can turn on a dime bag.
This Ain’t No Disco will feature scenic design by Jason Sherwood, costume design by Sarah Laux, lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design by Emily Lazar, projection design by Aaron Rhyne, musical direction by Darius Smith, and casting by Telsey + Company: Craig Burns, CSA.
Workshop productions of This Ain’t No Disco were presented by New York Stage and Film & Vassar at the Powerhouse Theater, Summer 2015 and Summer 2017.
This Ain’t No Disco is produced in cooperation with Miramax. The authors gratefully acknowledge Joy Gorman, Adam Shulman, and Steve Golin of Anonymous Content for their role in the development of This Ain’t No Disco.
