Grease - 1972 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Here is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'", "It's Raining on Prom Night", "Alone at the Drive-In Movie" recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An 8-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world's most popular musicals.

Ik ben enorm blij met deze cast,' laat Albert Verlinde weten. 'Marjolijn, William, Jonathan en Esmée zijn stuk voor stuk zeer ervaren acteurs die deze voorstelling naar een hoger niveau tillen. De musical is een fenomeen. Een begrip. Zelfs bij de jonge generatie. Het is fantastisch dat deze voorstelling wellicht de grootste fan schare, in alle leeftijden, ter wereld heeft en deze zelfs na 45 jaar blijft groeien. Van de acteurs verwachten we veel.
