Riverside Center for the Performing Arts is looking to bring disco fever to audiences with its current production of “Saturday Night Fever.”

The musical, based on the iconic John Travolta movie, follows Tony Manero, a Brooklyn 19-year-old who doesn’t seem to have a care in the world. Except for maybe the hair. Please don’t touch his hair.

The movie “Saturday Night Fever” premiered 40 years ago in December 1977. John Travolta’s opening strut down a Brooklyn street to “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees is among the most familiar scenes in movie history.
