Overview

No one expected the stage production of this in-your-face homage to high school, high hairdos, and hamburgers to succeed. Least of all Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, the two out-of-work actors who wrote it. But the Broadway production of GREASE ran for more than eight years, a record for its time. GREASE also spawned the wildly popular 1978 film, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, which begot one of the largest-selling soundtracks of all time. The peppy and effervescent score did not survive the transition to screen intact, but "Summer Nights," "Beauty School Dropout," and "Freddy My Love" still have charm to spare. These originals have been augmented by fool-proof commercial fare like John Farrar's "You're the One That I Want" and "Hopelessly Devoted to You," as well as the Barry Gibb-penned title song, sung by Frankie Valli, -- all of which became monster singles. The soundtrack is padded with some golden oldies performed by Sha-Na-Na, but GREASE is still the word when it comes to slumber parties, drag races, and prom night.
