BWW Reviews: GREASE - Cheese is the Word
by Tim Carney - Jan 07, 2014

It's hard to know where to start with this production of Grease. So much is right, even more is wrong. It is a combination of product and treatment of the product that impacts on the overall aesthetic of this show. The audience participation section at the beginning of the show is particularly laboured and drawn out and it takes an almighty burst of energy from the ensemble in Grease is the Word to recapture our waning attention. This energy level is never matched through the rest of the show leaving it feeling slow, clunky and particularly cheesy. Grease is an almighty movie, a classic that spans generations and has some of the more iconic characters of our time. While independently Rob Mills as Danny and Gretel Scarlett as Sandy do admirable jobs, collectively there in an apathetic connection between them. Their relationship, like a lot of the show, is underwhelming. (more...)

GREASE Opens in Melbourne, 1/5
by Tim Carney - Jan 02, 2014

Grease the musical will open in at Her Majesty's Theatre in Melbourne this weekend and from today's media call it looks to be one of the most vibrant and spirited mountings of the show. With an all star cast led by Rob Mills (Danny) Gretel Scarlett (Sandy) Anthony Callea (Johnny Casino) Val Lehma (Miss Lynch), Stephen Mahy (Kenickie), Lucy Maunder (Rizzo), Todd Mckenney (Teen Angel) and Bert Newton (Vince Fontaine) and an ensemble filled with high octaned performers, the show is sure to be a hit in what is a massive year in musical theatre in Melbourne . Having already completed seasons in Brisbane and Sydney, Grease comes to Melbourne on the back of great audiences and reviews. It seems Australia can't get enough of the iconic show with half of the 12 week season already completely sold out. Callea echoed that when we spoke today saying that 'the show is so much fun that audiences all over the country have been loving it wherever we go.' It's success so far has paved the way for confirmed seasons in Singapore, Adelaide and Perth, so be sure that you see this most famous show before it leaves Melbourne's shores. (more...)
