It's got groove, it's got meaning and it's coming to Singapore!
The acclaimed musical Grease will blaze into town, direct from London's West End and a sensational sell-out tour of Australia. It will open at the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands from this Friday to May 11.
This rocking musical 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 six 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.
Written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, Grease is possibly the only hit Broadway musical ever composed entirely on guitar. The production's 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 10 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, who falls for his charms.
Tickets: S$60 onwards. Time: 8pm (Tuesday to Friday), 2pm and 8pm (Saturday) and 1pm and 5.30pm (Sunday).
