More About Grease The Musical

Grease is a 1972 musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. Named for the 1950s United States working-class youth subculture known as the greasers. The score attempts to re-create the sounds of early rock and roll. In its record-breaking original Broadway production, Grease was a raunchy, raw, aggressive, vulgar show which has since been sanitized and tamed down by subsequent productions.

The Broadway production, directed by Tom Moore and choreographed by Patricia Birch (who later directed the ill-fated sequel of the film adaptation of Grease), opened on February 14, 1972.

On June 7, 1972, the production moved to the Broadhurst Theatre, and on November 21, it moved to the Royale Theatre where it ran until January 27, 1980. For five final weeks of the run, the show moved to the larger Majestic Theatre. By the time it closed on April 13, 1980, it had run 3,388-performances. It went on to become a West End hit, a hugely successful film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, a popular 1994 Broadway revival, and a staple of regional theatre, summer stock, community theatre, and high school and middle school drama groups. It remains Broadway’s thirteenth longest-running show.

It’s 1959 and Rydell High is filled with rebellious, thrill-loving students. In the midst of this scene, Sandy Dumbrowski enters as the new girl in school. It turns out that she and the leader of the Burger Palace Boys gang, Danny Zuko, have had a brief love affair the summer before. While Sandy stresses to her new classmates the emotional attachment she and Danny had, Danny stresses the physical aspects of their relationship. As the show goes on, the students at Rydell High have to deal with love, gang violence, teen pregnancy, and friendship. In the end, Sandy and Danny resolve their differences and end up happily together.
