Do you remember the summer that you felt pretty much the same way as Sandy and Danny from Grease? When love was not only confusing but so was life in general?When things sizzled between them? When Olivia Newton John and John Travolta sang and danced, donned the leather, greased and back combed their hair and through the movie took us on their journey?
Well it is time to share that experience again.Grease the Musical is coming to Brisbane, with an additional week's worth of shows. Originally slated for 6 weeks demand has won out and more shows have been added.
A whole new generation will be able to take part in the love affair that has spanned time and still has a lot of us remembering it from its first go round. We know the words to all the songs and have probably been to a Grease party or two and worn out a couple of videos.
And is the way of time, younger bodies are needed to fill the roles of high school students and greasers from the 50's.
