Grease

Music, Lyrics and Book by JIM JACOBS & WARREN CASEY

 

Plot Synopsis

"Originally staged as a five-hour amateur production in a Chicago trolley barn, Grease took a satirical look at the dress, manners, morals and music of teenagers at the beginning of the rock and roll era. The plot revolves primarily around the attraction between greaser Danny Zuko and the virtuous Sandy Dumbrowski. The show spawned such musical hits as 'Summer Nights', 'Greased Lightning' and 'Beauty School Dropout'.

Grease opened at the Off-Broadway Eden Theatre, moved on to Broadway at the Broadhurst, and was eventually transferred to the Royale. Along the way, it enjoyed a run of 3388 performances - a record which would stand until 1980 when it was overtaken by A Chorus Line. The original cast featured Barry Bostwick and Carole Demas. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John starred in the 1978 film version."
