Grease IS the word and one of the most wildly successful Broadway shows of all time. Created in 1971 by two self-proclaimed “Greasers” Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, the show has transformed into a Broadway and Hollywood phenomenon.
The 2007 revival production is directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall (of Pajama Game fame). This sweet, mildly sexy vision of innocent teen romance recently came to television with the NBC reality show “You’re The One That I Want!” The show scoured the nation for the male and female leads of the Broadway revival production.
Sandy is the pretty, new girl in town at the start of the summer. She falls for Tony, the local hunk, and they have an innocent summer romance. By the start of school however Tony has transformed into the cool, aloof leader of the T-Birds leaving Sandy lonely and confused. The bad girls of the school, The Pink Ladies and their leader, Rizzo, befriend virginal Sandy and fill her in on what it’s like to be a girl at Rydell High. All of our old favorite songs (“Summer Nights”, “You’re The One That I Want”, “Grease Is The Word”) are back to sing along and hand jive to.
Grease has won many Tonys both in its original incarnation and as a revival production. The show has launched many well known and respected actors’ careers. Tony has famously been played by John Travolta, Patrick Swayze and Richard Gere. Sandy has been brought to life by Tracy Ullman; Stockard Channing and Brooke Shields have played Rizzo. Grease is a fun, earnest show that the whole family can enjoy. The songs, the dancing, the story - everything will have you up on your feet, cheering for more!
