A new musical set in 1979 New York City that follows clubgoers in the height of the chaos and revelry of Studio 54 and Mudd Clubb.
From the producers: Set against the grit, the garbage strikes, 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.
