Nearly four decades after Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson's delicious youthful romance in legendary Grease (1978), Grease Live breathes new life into everyone's favourite teenage love affair; however, with a twist: the addition of a live audience. Once more, against the colourful backdrop of the iconic late-1950s Rydell High, the riotous gang of greasers, the T-Birds, and Betty Rizzo's delightfully sassy posse, the Pink Ladies, battle for attention, thirsting to become the coolest teams in school. Undoubtedly, this is going to be yet another year filled with passion, innocence, dance, affection, and teen energy, as the students set their mind on excelling in the much-awaited live dance contest. In this high school graduation day, GREASE is still the word.
An electrifying LIVE television event!
Did You Know?
When John Travolta was cast in the original film, the producers made a point to make his Danny Zuko have an Elvis feel. Here, due to Aaron Tveit's blonde hair, the character was styled after James Dean, as evidenced by a photo of Dean hanging in Danny's locker. See more
During the car reveal scene, after Mrs. Murdock gives the one liner "I intend to get loaded myself", two of the actors can be heard conversing about the line. One says "she does it every time" and the other responds "I know, the little one liner." The two presumably did not know that their mics were still on, and the mistake was kept in both the broadcast and later released version. See more
