GREASE Opening June 7 At Broadway By The Bay

GREASE Opening June 7 At Broadway By The Bay

A wop baba lu mop, ahh wop bam boom! Broadway by the Bay continues their 2019 season with Grease - the beloved rock n' roll celebration of teen angst, fast cars and first loves all set in the fabulous fifties. This all-new production is on stage June 7 to 23 and features the irresistible songs from the Tony Award nominated Broadway show and hit movie, including "Summer Nights,", "Greased Lightnin'", "Born to Hand Jive", "There are Worse Things I Could Do", and many more. So get out your leather jackets and pull on your bobby socks with Rydell High's senior class of 1959!

Grease follows love-struck bad-boy Danny and girl-next-door Sandy as they navigate the highs and lows of high-school in the late 50's - a time when teens had the freedom of leisure time, cash to spend, and independence in the post-war economic boom. They rebelled against the adult world's behavioral codes and conservative expectations, emerging with a culture of greasers that were aloof and cool, clad in leather jackets, tight pants and slicked hair. Their decadent behavior was often blamed on a new and unstoppable influence - rock n' roll. Inspired by the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley, Grease became the soundtrack of a generation. After an eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with innumerable regional and community productions, Grease is among the world's most popular musicals.

Grease runs for nine performances only beginning June 7, 2019. Tickets (ranging from $44-$66) are available by calling (650) 579-5565, online at www.broadwaybythebay.org, or at the Box Office located at 2219 Broadway Street in downtown Redwood City.

On performance days, the Box Office is open 60 minutes prior to the start of each show and remains open for 30 minutes following the start of the performance.
