Grease The Musical

Grease the musical, named for the "greasers" of the 1950's, made it's Broadway debut in 1972. It records the romance of two high school kids and addresses many of the social issues that teenagers face such as, gang violence and teenage pregnancy. Known for it's doo-wop, and rock and roll score, Grease the musical, has been the choice of many high schools for their annual school theater presentation.

Grease has found popularity on both the New York and London stage and has been revived by both several times. Last year, 2007, Grease was revived on both West End and Broadway. The Broadway revival was preceded by a reality television show on NBC, "Grease - You're The One that I Want", in which show finalists competed for the lead parts of Danny and Sandy. The winners, chosen by the public, Max Crumm (Danny) and Laura Osnes (Sandy) are the current stars of the show on Broadway. This revival of Grease The Musical is directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall and is playing at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Grease has won several Drama Desk Awards, two Theatre Desk Awards and has been nominated for eleven Tony Awards.
