Darko Tresnjak directs.

An impressionistic rock opera, This Ain't No Disco is set against the grit, the garbage strikes, and the graffiti of 1979 New York City and 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 features 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, and musical direction by Darius Smith.
