STEVEN ALEXANDER WRIGHT STAND UP COMEDIAN
ACTOR, & WRITER ON STAGE AT PARKER PLAYHOUSE
Wright was ranked as the twenty-third greatest comedian by Comedy Central in a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comics. He was awarded the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film for his 1988 short film “The Appointments of Dennis Jennings.”
He is an American Stand-up Comedian, actor, writer, and an Oscar-winning film producer. Steven is known for his distinctly lethargic voice and slow, deadpan delivery of ironic, philosophical and sometimes nonsense jokes.
In 1985 Wright’s comedy album was entitled “I Have A Pony,” released by Warner Bros. Records and received critical acclaim, in addition to a nomination for the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. The success of this album landed him an HBO special which he recorded as a live college concert performance, known as A Steven Wright Special.
His opening act for HBO was “Ding Ho.” The performance would become one of HBO’s longest running and most requested comedy specials, and would propel him to great success. In 2005 he was voted amongst the top 50 comedy acts by fellow comedians.

STAGE DOOR THEATRE CELEBRATES THEIR 25TH SEASON WITH SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER
Saturday Night Fever caused a sensation when it debuted in movie theaters in 1977 and is one of the most beloved dance stories of all time. It tells coming‑of‑age tale of young Tony Manero who learns the value of life in the 1970's in Brooklyn, New York.
Based on the 1977 movie starring John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever is packed with legendary hits from the Bee Gees, Barry, Robin and Maurice, including Stayin’ Alive,” “ Night Fever,” “Jive Talking,” “ You Should Be Dancing,” and “How Deep Is Your Love,” in addition to several new songs written especially for this production.
The show focuses on Tony, a Brooklyn youth whose weekend is spent at the local discotheque. There he finds great satisfaction in admiring the crowd and a growing relationship with Stephanie Mangano, and can temporarily forget the realities of his life, including a dead‑end job in a paint store and his gang of dead beat friends.
This musical adaptation celebrates the 40th anniversary of the 70's classic film and a quintessential story of a talented streetwise kid who attempts to escape his dead‑end life through dancing. So, get on your boogie shoes and hustle on down to the hottest disco in town.
This is a party you won’t want to miss, now on stage through October 15, 2017. All tickets are $48 at the box office located at 8036 West Sample Road, Margate, evenings at 8 p.m. matinees 2 p.m. Wednesdays to Sundays. Call 954‑344‑7765 for reservations and more information.
