Grease the Musical
About The Show
After a 2017 run that saw packed houses and ecstatic audiences for over three months, the production was forced to close for upgrades to the Winter Garden Theatre. 55,000 audience members saw Grease the Musical this fall, and producers David Galpern, John Kelly and Charles Roy believe this signals that there is a place in Canada for their new theatre company.
Hundreds of Facebook fans petitioned for the show’s return using the hashtag #BringGreaseBack. Grease’s May 24th return wouldn’t be possible without these fans who made their love for the show known - some who saw the show during its run, and others who didn’t yet get the chance.
This thrilling production, created by internationally acclaimed Broadway choreographer and director Josh Prince, returns Grease to the streets of 1950s Chicago and incorporates the most beloved songs from the 1978 film in breathtaking new arrangements from Las Vegas icon Phil Burton of Human Nature.
