About Grease The Musical

Grease is the word! Rock up with your T-Birds and your Pink Ladies for a night under the bleachers at Rydell High. Don’t be stranded at the drive-in. Book Grease tickets in London on TodayTix today.

The 1978 Grease film saw John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John play two loved-up teens in Rydell High, a 1950s high school. Elements of the film remain, including all your favourite songs like “You’re The One That I Want” and “There Are Worse Things I Could Do." London Theatre said Grease is a “fitfully gritty take on the beloved musical that will still give you chills.” Multiply all the theatre fun you can have in the West End.

The Grease musical starts off with an unexpected reunion. One summer, Danny Zuko and Sandy Dumbrowski fall head over heels for one another. So imagine Sandy’s surprise when she transfers school for her senior year and sees Danny walking the corridors.

As they rekindle their spark and declare their unrequited love — just like teenagers do — Danny and Sandy have to survive high school first. Dances, prom nights and sleepovers are bigtime events for these Rydell High teens, but can they go together like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong?

See those magic changes in the West End. Book Grease tickets in London on TodayTix.

Tell Me More

You may know the blockbuster hit. Grease was one of the most successful movie musicals of the 20th century, alongside Dirty Dancing. But did you know the Grease musical came first? Chicago-based group Kingston Mines Theatre premiered Grease in 1971.

The musical's creators, Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey took inspiration from William Howard Taft School, a Chicago public school where writer Jim Jacobs attended, and nine miles away from the world premiere location. Even though Grease was Jacobs and Casey’s only musical, they’ve definitely gone down in the musical theatre yearbook!

50 years later, Grease combines the electric feeling from the original musical and film with a new look. Dame Arlene Phillips choreographs pulsating dance routines for sonsg like "Greased Lightnin'" and "Born to Hand Jive." Nikolai Foster directs a Grease with more grit and allows the teenage women to tell their story.

Don’t be a beauty school dropout, because this is the musical you need, oh yes indeed! Book your Grease tickets on TodayTix now.

What to Watch For:

  • The Grease school Rydell High is named after rock singer, Bobby Rydell. The teen idol was one-third of the music trio, The Golden Boys.
  • Grease transcended musical theatre to be a cultural phenomenon. When Grease made to Broadway, it was the longest-running Broadway musical of its time.
  • The Grease film has been preserved by the National Film Registry in the USA as a movie that’s culturally, historically and aesthetically significant. We agree!
  • Listen out for the three new songs added into this production. Sing along at the end of the show in a thrilling megamix!
