Transcript of power point on grease the musical


Grease,
a musical about a group of American teenagers and their adventures, such as romance and drag racing, was written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. The musical was inspired by Jim Jacobs' high school experience. The story's setting is in 1959 at Rydell High School.
The music in
Grease
was also written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. Early rock and roll greatly influenced the sound of the musical. The songs from
Grease
such as "You're the One That I Want," "Grease Lightnin'," and "Summer Nights," are extremely popular and known all around the world.
The Plot
The two groups of friends in the story are The Burger Palace Boys (who are called the Thunderbirds, or T-Birds, in the 2007 Broadway revival and in the film) and The Pink Ladies. Danny Zuko and Sandy Dumbrowski had a summer fling, but once school starts again their romance is over. Danny is a member of the T-birds and is "too cool" to be dating Sandy in front of his friends. Sandy joins the Pink Ladies to try to meet his standards, but she is "too pure." After several break-ups and make-ups, Sandy and Danny decide to proclaim their love in "You're the One That I Want." Throughout the year, Danny , Sandy, and their friends face obstacles including gang violence and teenage issues.
Grease
debuted in 1971 but premiered on Broadway and London in 1973. The film was released in 1978, with John Travolta starring as Danny Zuko and Olivia Newton-John as Sandy. In 1993,
Grease
was revived in London, and in 1994 Broadway followed. The American Theater Company in Chicago hosted a 40th anniversary revival in 2011.
