Why See Grease?
Grease is the word
Peter Andre makes his West End debut alongside Jason Donovan as Teen Angel
The ultimate teen dream is back and bigger than ever in this brand new production speeding its way to the Dominion Theatre! Created by Leicester's Curve Theatre, the story of Sandy and Danny has never been more thrilling - or more glamourous. Expect to hear all your favorites including 'Sandra Dee', 'Greased Lighting' and 'Hopelessly Devoted To You' as a new year at Rydell High beckons. Pompadours and poodle skirts optional.
Grease is the word
The original Grease musical premiered on Broadway in 1972, where it was nominated for seven Tonys (it was the year of Follies, but it should have still won one of them!). Its reputation was of course sealed by its iconic silver screen adaptation that arrived six years later, starring the fresh-faced John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, who were both on the cusp of superstardom
What is the story?
Teen romance never looked so cool! It's the mid-50s and chasing girls, cars, and leather jackets are the order of the day as high school senior Danny Zuko and pals (The T-birds), prepare to take on their final year of lessons. But Danny's carefree plans are scuppered by the appearance of innocent new girl Sandy - the very same girl he was romancing all summer. Poor Sandy's squeaky clean image won't fly with the T-Birds, so Danny cruelly ignores her. But don't worry for Sandra-Dee, because the ultra-cool Pink Ladies come to the rescue! When these popular girls take Sandy under their wing, so begins a transformation that has Danny in a spin. Throw in the odd underage pregnancy storyline, a Beauty School dropout, and a televised dance competition and you've got the iconic hormonal chaos that is Grease!
