Grease had its Broadway première in 1972 and has triumphed throughout the world. An 8-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with innumerable school and community productions including the hit film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John place Grease among the world’s most popular musicals.
Co-creators, Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, were friends for seven years before they collaborated on Grease and it was over a beer at a party when the idea first surfaced. Reacting against the “traditional, ‘legit’ show-tune type melodies of the Great White Way”, Jacobs and Casey amused themselves imagining this new kind of musical on Broadway, with music from the late Fifties and characters from the golden days of rock ‘n’ roll.
Grease is a family friendly show appropriate for all ages 10 and up.
