Afternoon Disco Break - Tribute to Studio 54


NYC's legendary disco Studio 54 opened exactly 33 years ago this week - and people are STILL talking about it.  Studio (along with Paradise Garage and The Saint) is one of those clubs I wish I'd been able to experience first-hand.  After all, rubbing shoulders with Liza, Andy and Bianca would have been awesome...


Actually, I WAS able to see to Studio 54 once.  In the mid-90's it re-opened briefly as a nightclub before becoming a full-time Broadway theater.  I checked it out on Gay Night (the club is literally 2 blocks away from my apartment) - but it wasn't very exciting.  After a few weeks the nightclub shut down for good.

The venue is now the home of the Roundabout Theatre Company.

At first glance I thought that was Rosario Dawson in the photo

Imagine what all went on there! The stories we've heard are probably the tip of the iceberg.
