Grab your favorite Pink Lady and travel back
to when beehives were in and coifs were cool. “GREASE,” one
of Broadway’s longest running musicals, takes a hilarious,
tuneful and loving look at what it was like growing-up in the
super-cool ‘50’s with the funniest gang of high
school students you’ll ever meet.
Taking place in a time
when hot-rod-loving boys in black-leather jackets chased
boy-crazy girls in white bobby socks and pedal pushers, “GREASE” is
complete with drive-in passion pits, sock hops, pajama parties,
hubcap stealing and sneaking cigarettes at the senior prom.
“GREASE” brings back the classic
rock ‘n’ roll sounds of the fifties with songs
including “We Go Together,” “Greased
Lightnin,” “Beauty School Dropout” and “Summer
Nights.” And for those of you who cannot
get enough of “GREASE” special
arrangements have been made to include three songs from the
hit movie. “Hopelessly Devoted to You” and “You’re
The One That I Want” (by arrangement with Warner/Chappell
Music) and Barry Gibb’s “Grease” (by
arrangement with BMG Music Publishing). Come early
and have fun with the coolest of cool dee-jays, Vince Fontaine,
as he spins your favorite tunes from the era at the best dance
party in town!
“GREASE” is the story of Danny
Zuko, king of the Burger Palace Boys and Sandy Dumbrowski,
the wholesome, naïve and pretty transfer student whose
life changes forever after meeting the tough yet vulnerable
Rizzo, leader of the Pink Ladies gang.
“GREASE” was written by Warren
Casey and Jim Jacobs. Direction is by Ray DeMattis, choreography
by Christopher Gattelli, set design by James Youmans, costumes
by Wendall Goings, lighting design by Mike Baldassari and sound
design and musical direction by Steve Bishop. “GREASE” is
produced by Phoenix Productions; co-producer is Magic Arts
“GREASE,” Broadway’s record-breaking
sensation, promises to be the hottest ride in town!
