Grease is the Word!
It’s got groove, it’s got meaning and it’s coming to Singapore!
Singapore, 10 January 2014 – The new multi-million dollar musical GREASE will blaze into town in 2014 direct from London’s West End and a sensational sell-out tour of Australia and open at the MasterCard® Theatres at Marina Bay Sands on 25 April.
This rockin musical production is packed with explosive energy and features a spectacular international cast, super-slick dance moves, dazzling costumes and all those unforgettable songs from the hit movie, including Summer Nights, Sandy, Hopelessly Devoted To You, You’re The One That I Want, Greased Lightnin’ and Grease Is The Word.
Since the show’s Broadway premiere in 1972, and the first London production opened 6 months later with a young, unknown Richard Gere as Danny Zuko, the stage production was then followed by the 1978 hit movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, which went on to become the highest grossing movie-musical of all time. GREASE has since triumphed across the globe, with its irresistible mix of adolescent angst, vibrant physicality and 1950s pop culture.
GREASE really is “fast, furious and thrilling, an injection of raw energy… and fun, fun, fun.”
(The Daily Mirror, UK)
GREASE, written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, is possibly the only hit Broadway musical ever composed entirely on guitar. The productions name comes from the term greasers, a 1950s United States working-class youth subculture. GREASE takes place in and around fictitious Rydell High, and follows ten working-class teenagers in 1959 as they experience the intricacies of love, friendship and rebellion. The story revolves around the relationship between “bad boy” Danny Zuko, who believes he is the coolest of cool and “girl next door” Sandy.
So dust off your leather jacket, pull on your bobby-socks and take a trip to a simpler time as the MasterCard® Theatre is turned into Rydell High School in a stage show that is truly ELECTRIFYIN !
