The 1999 Broadway jukebox musical Saturday Night Fever will now be licensed in North and South America by Broadway Licensing. The work was previously handled by Theatrical Rights Worldwide.

Inspired by the 1977 film and the 1975 New York Magazine article on which it was based, Saturday Night Fever features a book by Broadway Licensing President and CEO Sean Cercone and new songs by David Abbinanti. The score features music by the Bee Gees, including "Stayin' Alive," "Night Fever," "More Than a Woman," "How Deep is Your Love," and more. The jukebox musical premiered on Broadway in 1999 and has enjoyed two U.S. national tours and other productions around the world.

"Iconic. Transformative. Authentic. Saturday Night Fever is the film, story, and music that defined that period in American history,” says Cercone. “We are honored to be the home for this cultural touchstone and excited to help theatre fans get on their Boogie Shoes.”
