Danny and Sandy fall in love during a summer fling. But when school begins, Danny is torn between his feelings for Sandy and his image with the T-Birds.

Grease on Broadway Background

Grease, by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, is the all-American musical, based on the sub-cultures of high school life in the 1950s. The show takes place at the hyperactive Rydell High School, where Danny Zuko fronts his gang - the raucous T-birds - who romance their sassy female equivalents - the Pink Ladies. When "good girl" Sandy Dumbrowski arrives in town, the Pink Ladies take her under their collective wing.

What’s Grease Like?

In 1978, Grease became "the word" with a popular feature film adaptation starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as the lovelorn leads. A Broadway revival played from 2007 through 2009.

The Broadway production features the smash Jacobs-Casey songs made famous by the original 1972 Broadway production, including "Summer Nights," "Greased Lightning," and "We Go Together," as well as the additional film songs "Grease Is the Word," "You're The One That I Want," "Hopelessly Devoted To You," and "Sandy" interpolated into the score. Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (The Pajama Game) directs and choreographs this exciting new Broadway production.

Is Grease Good for Kids?

Despite having a couple of inferred references to sex and abortion, Grease is a Broadway show that is generally suitable for all ages.
