Grease is the word, Sunday more than ever! (UPDATE: Click here for the full EW review of Grease: Live!)
Fox is jumping on the live-event bandwagon with a new adaptation of the musical saga about dancing greasers and the Pink Ladies who put up with them. Grease: Live! promises to include elements from the original stage version and the beloved Travoltastic film adaptation, plus a new song and a sprinkle of Jepsen. Julianne Hough plays nice newbie Sandy and Aaron Tveit is Danny Zuko, none of which matters because VANESSA HUDGENS is Rizzo, the end.
Grease: Live! also includes appearances by musicians Joe Jonas, Jessie J, Boyz II Men, and the aforementioned Carly Rae Jepsen. And the show’s directed by Thomas Kail, fresh off his phenomenal success helming the Broadway ker-smash Hamilton. The full EW review of Grease: Live! is now live, here! But you can also start posting your thoughts in the comments. Here are some questions to get you going: Who’s the least believable high schooler? Are you already ‘shipping Wendell Pierce’s Coach and Ana Gasteyer’s Principal? Does Grease share a cinematic universe with High School Musical?
