Tribute to the Bee Gees comes to area venue this weekend

A tribute to the Bee Gees, one of the most iconic ’70s bands to ever hit the stage, will be performed this weekend at the Downtown Cabaret Theatre in Bridgeport. Shows are Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

“Night Fever” is the largest fully staged production of the Bee Gees in the world, according to publicity material. The all-Canadian cast has been touring worldwide for 10 years, re-creating the look and sound of the Bee Gees.

The tribute show includes such songs as “To Love Somebody,” “Jive Talking,” “More Than A Woman,” “Night Fever,” “You Should Be Dancing,” “Stayin’ Alive” and many more.

Appearing as the Bee Gees are Joe Varga as Robin Gibb, John Acosta as Barry Gibb, and Carm Castiglione as Maurice Gibb.
