    Has anyone figured out the Grease Lightning car change out yet? 


    Camera pans away to Kenickie singing his verse so car switch is happening at that point.  Kenickie finishes verse then camera pans to 3 dancers doing their thing, thus giving more time for car switch and now letting Kenickie and others do their quick change.  Camera then pans from the 3 dancers to the red car and cast in blue jumpsuits.  Same idea for when the car (and guys) go bac

    I hope it's made clear somewhere that Thomas Kail did not direct the live broadcast - he directed the actors during rehearsals and camera blocking but he was NOT directing the cameras during the live broadcast.  He's being praised and credited for this which is expected, unfortunately.   

  • The original Summer Nights  Feb 2 2016, 02:59:40 PM

    With all due respect, that is from an early 80s TV Special where many Broadway luminaries performed, in many cases original cast members performed something from their associated musical.  It looks 80s-ish because there was no effort to use full set/costume recreations.  Most performed their numbers in regular gowns/suits - no costume.  The American Dance Machine troupe plays the background roles.  


    This is by no means is a recreation of how "Summer

  • Grease Live vs Actual Show?  Feb 1 2016, 03:26:53 PM

    Marilu Henner began her career in Chicago which is how she was involved with creating the role of Marty in the original 1971 production of GREASE prior to its NY debut.  She has said that though she was offered the role when it was going to be done Off-Broadway, she declined.  She thought the show was too Chicago specific and would never succeed in NY unaware of the changes that were eventually done to the show for NY.  A decision she regretted as the actress cast, Ka

  • Grease 1993 and 1994 Revival synopes?  Feb 1 2016, 02:42:54 PM

    The Rydell High School Alma Mater and its parody and "We Go Together" are completely different songs - no shared melody, etc.  

  • Grease 1993 and 1994 Revival synopes?  Feb 1 2016, 01:15:30 PM

    The 1994 Broadway revival stuck to the original 1972 Broadway book and only added "Since I Don't Have You" to its score.  It did not use a single song written for the 1978 film ("Hopelessly Devoted to You", "Grease" (Is the Word), "You're the One that I Want", etc).

    Olivia Newton-John is from Australia so her Sandy was made Australian.  Julianne Hough was born and raised in Salt Lake City as is her Sandy.  I guess it's safe to assume the writers chose to honor the actresses playing Sandy by having their "Sandy" be from their hometowns as well.

    Yes, MTV's broadcast of LEGALLY BLONDE: The Musical was filmed in its Broadway home: the Palace Theatre.  3 performances were filmed and edited as one single performance.  It was not broadcast "live."

    No staging was altered due to the rain.  They put up black tarps over all exterior sets and the audience bleachers so rain or shine, they could still telecast without an issues.   The darken skies were clearly visible on certain  shots.

    No, unlike the 'live' episodes of WILL & GRACE and 30 ROCK which were performed twice: once for the east coast and a few hours later performed again for the west coast, GREASE: Live! will re-air a tape for the west coast of the earlier 'live' east coast telecast.

    For those curious ones, Haneefah Wood is playing Blanche.  


    She has extensive Broadway, Off-Broadway and television credits.

    Same exact cast recording with only Brooke Shields adding her vocals to the Rizzo tracks and sections.  They did the same thing when Brooke replaced (quite successfully) Donna Murphy in the revival of WONDERFUL TOWN.

    They are using as the base the 1978 film adaptation (including the songs added/written for it: "Hoplessly Devoted to You", "You're the One that I Want", etc) but also incorporating elements from the Broadway production such as songs ("Freddy, My Love", etc) as well.  It'll be a mish-mosh of both.

    Chita Rivera was kicking her leg behind her head and dancing in the dance-heavy KISS OF THE SPIDERWOMAN back in the early 90s and she was 65.  


    The dancing in CHICAGO is no where near as demanding.  d'Amboise can dance CHICAGO in her sleep.

    Phantom of London - as I mentioned, the original Broadway cast, including Pryce and Salonga were LONG gone from the Broadway production of MISS SAIGON by the time the 1st National Tour went out in 1994.  He was referring to the principals currently (circa 1994) in the Broadway cast and why he cast the tour with superior actors adding that since most people would be seeing the tour of the musical, he wanted the BEST representation of MISS SAIGON in every way, hence why the touring version
