GREASE 2 Live in London For One Night Only, Lyric Theatre, Jan 2014
Perhaps the greatest sequel ever told (and then set to music); the much loved cult movie musical GREASE 2will finally join the ranks of screen-to-stage musicals in concert and for one night only at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue on Monday 27 January 2014. On sale now. Full casting to be announced.
Telling the heady love story of Pink Lady Stephanie Zinone and English transfer student Michael Carrington, Grease 2 follows their road to romance from bowling alley to burger joint, sing-a-long-a-sex education class to talent show, and long (and beautifully lit) romantic motorcycle rides to a slightly incongruous luau ending. Featuring the hit songs 'Who's That Guy?', 'Score Tonight', 'Cool Rider' (which will be sung precariously atop a step ladder without the aid of wires for safety), 'Girl for all Seasons' and the haunting melody of 'Rock-a-Hula Luau (Summer Is Coming)', Grease 2 In Concert celebrates the infamous styles, moves and wheels of the greatest high school of all time. Whether you're a Pink Lady or a T-Bird, the doors to Rydell High are reopening so grab your jackets, book your tickets, hide those hickeys and head to the Lyric Theatre!
Based on the cult 1982 movie of the same name, Paramount Pictures released Grease 2 in the wake of the huge popularity of its filmic predecessor. Despite being produced by Allan Carr and Robert Stigwood, featuring a catchy-score and witty book and with a cast headed by Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield, it failed to ignite the Box Office, however quickly cemented itself as a firm favourite amongst cult movie and musical fans. This staged concert will pay homage to its sheer brilliance and shortcomings with many surprises along the way.
Grease 2 co-producer Christopher D. Clegg said: "James and I are delighted to be bringing the UK's first live concert staging of Grease 2 to the West End next year. As huge fans of the film it has been a dream of ours to produce a live incarnation complete with an amazing cast backed by a live band performing the full score plus some additional scenes written especially for the show."
