This week on South Florida stages: Strength in numbers

This is what is happening in the performing-arts scene in South Florida this week.

DISASTER!

The music is from the 1970s, hits such as “Hooked on a Feeling, “Hot Stuff,” “I Am Woman” and “I Will Survive.” The book is by Seth Rudetsky (SiriusXM Broadway host and three-time Emmy Award nominee) and Jack Plotnick (and actor best known for Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie” and the movie “Girls Will Be Girls”). The show is a pure parody of disaster movies from the Me Decade.
