What’s Your Studio 54?

What’s your Studio 54?

What’s your big, brilliant idea, the one thing you’re doing to do that’s going to break through the clutter and make you a star?

What’s your plan for success?

The brainchild of Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, Studio 54 was a nightclub on 254 West 54th Street in New York City that was ridiculously popular in the late 1970s. It is home to the Roundabout Theatre Company today.

During the heyday of the disco era, Studio 54 was the place to be for stars, celebrities and anybody who wanted to dance the night away in the city that never sleeps.

Rubell and Schrager were ingenious in creating such a hot spot for people who wanted to enjoy the nightlife and bask in the limelight in Manhattan.

They were pioneers, entrepreneurs, visionaries and moguls. But they also went to jail, unfortunately, for tax evasion, so their balloon was burst in an abrupt, ignominious way.

Never mind the end of the story, though, think about the beginning.

Do you have a dream that, if realized, will change the world?
