Grease originally opened in Chicago in 1971, followed by a move to Broadway in 1972 where it received seven Tony Award nominations, including one for Best Musical.
During the show’s eight-year run at the time, little-known actors including Peter Gallagher, Patrick Swayze and John Travolta all appeared in the production, with Richard Gere understudying many roles before going on to star as Danny Zuko in the 1973 London premiere.
Grease was first performed at the Dominion Theatre in 1993 before transferring to the Cambridge Theatre in 1996. It returned to the West End, opening at the Piccadilly Theatre in 2007.
The 1978 film adaptation starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John is the fourth highest-grossing live action musical of all time. The musical features beloved songs, including Summer Nights, Greased Lightnin’ and You’re The One That I Want.
Grease is currently booking until 29th October at London’s Dominion Theatre. For more information visit www.greasemusical.co.uk.
