Overview

If you haven't already fallen in love with classic teen musical Grease, then now is your chance! This '50s-set rock 'n' roll show is the one that you want to set your spirits soaring this Summer.

Nikolai Foster's production of Grease has earned rave reviews, including ★★★★ from the Guardian, which praised it for going back to the show's roots and restoring some songs which have been hardly ever heard since its Broadway premiere. It has been on a UK tour before this triumphal arrival in the West End, and it's now ready to delight nostalgic audiences and win some new ones too.

Grease is a classic girl meets boy story that follows bad boy Danny, his quiffed hair full of the grease that gives this show its name, as he meets sweet and innocent Sandy, freshly arrived from Australia. As Danny soups up his car for races with his mates the T-Birds ('Greased Lightnin'), Sandy makes friends with the elite clique the Pink Ladies, and pours out her love at a sleepover ('Hopelessly Devoted To You'). But Grease isn't all sweet and saccharine romance. Its writers Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey penned it in 1971 as a way of looking back on their own teenage years, and exposing the sex and bitter rivalry which simmered underneath the sickly sweet aesthetic of 1950s teenagerhood.

Grease quickly wowed nostalgic 1970s audiences, who flocked to its original premiere in a Chicago nightclub, to its Broadway run and eventually to its West End premiere. But it was when Grease was made into a film in 1978 that it really hit the big time: the starring talents of John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John became icons for a generation of teens, even if they were a good decade older than the characters they played.
