RELIVE THOSE SUMMER NIGHTS WITH GREASE
The multi-million dollar musical Grease opens tonight by an Australian cast at MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands. The musical will run from 25 April to 18 May 2014.
The show premiered on Broadway in 1972 and later on in London starring a young, unknown Richard Gere as Danny Zuko. The stage production was adapted into a movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in 1978 which was the highest grossing movie-musical of all time. Grease has since travelled worldwide with its amazing mix of adolescent angst and 50’s pop culture.
Grease really is “fast and furious and thrilling, an injection of raw energy….and fun, fun, fun” (The Daily Mirror, UK)
