[Press Conference] Saturday Night Fever The Musical in Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur, September 2015- Just a few days ago, our team from wljack.com and loong-updates.blogspot.com have been given a chance to attend the meet and greet media session with the casts of the upcoming musical show in Instana Budaya, titled Saturday Night Fever The Musical 2015!

Saturday Night Fever- The Musical Meet and Greet Media Session
Date: 1st September 2015
Time: 1.30pm
Venue: Johnny Rockets Restaurant, Pavilion KL

Get ready with your disco hustle moves as Milestone Production is bringing these world-class performers to Kuala Lumpur from September 4 – 13, 2015 to perform in Istana Budaya.

Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero, a young Italian- American man with a talent for dance. As immortalized forever by the performance of John Travolta in the 1977 film that inspired the musical, Tony has only one ambition: to become the disco king. When he meets Stephanie Mangano, who also dreams of a life beyond the city, they decide to train together for a dance competition and their lives are changed forever.

Before they take the stage in the opening show on September 4th , the leading stars for this beloved musical have provided a teaser on what to expect at a special media meet-and-greet event at Johnny Rockets Pavilion KL on September 1st.

Principal performers Brandon Rubendall, Jenna Rubaii and Nick Varricchio who plays Tony, Stephanie and Double J respectively for this musical have attended the event together with the show’s official organizer Milestone Production Managing Director, Grace Lee.

Having been on many tours which include Wicked, Spiderman:Turn Off The Dark and Hairspray, Brandon has also performed alongside Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce. His co-star Jenna has been on tours for great musicals such as Grease, Pride and Prejudice and 54 Forever. These two seasoned stage performers certainly piqued our excitement with their sneak-peak performance at the meet-and-greet session.

Apart from these two, the dashing Nick Varricchio who plays Double J in the musical also attended the meet and greet session. Nick was born ​and raised in Cleveland and has performed in Broadway and have been on many musical tours which include ‘A Chorus Line’ , ‘Spring Awakening’ , ‘Cabaret’ , ‘Chicago’ , ‘Into The Woods’ ; ‘Cinderella’ and many more. Be ready to sing along to the tunes of the Bee Gees as their arrival here marks the beginning of a renaissance of disco fever in Kuala Lumpur.

Under the watchful eye of award-winning director Bobby Garcia,  Saturday Night Fever The Musical 2015 will be imbued with a slight contemporary edge while retaining the film’s grittiness and realistic portrayal of the disco era. Its showcase of hit music and electric dance moves is true entertainment value at its best.
