The cast received a standing ovation from the crowd on opening night.
Combs, slick hair, Pink Ladies and a high school romance - Grease the award winning musical has hit the Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
From the get go the audience knew the show would be quirky and hilarious thanks to a morning and parting announcement messages from Rydell High’s Principal McGee telling them to turn off their phones.
Grease takes audiences right into the middle of the 1950’s pop culture and the timeless high school love story between Danny Zuko a rebel without a cause and perfect student Sandy.
The show was fast paced and is bursting at the seams with unforgettable slick numbers such as “Greased Lightnin’”, “Beauty School Dropout” and “You’re The One That I Want”.
The energy didn't stop there as the acting from ensemble to lead roles were extravagant, amusing and out of this world hilarious.
The Wanted’s Tom Parker filled Danny Zuko’s Chuck Taylor’s and leather jacket. His vocal range was much better than expected, however, he came across very stiff and slightly uncomfortable at times.
Danielle Hope is a 21st century version of Sandy through her image, poise and pitch perfect vocals. They were joined by Donny Osmond also know as Frenchie’s guardian angel and by EastEnders star Louisa Lytton who starred as Rizzo the head of the Pink Ladies.
Having first seen the light of day on Broadway in 1972, Grease has made its way into the cultural hall of fame and has been voted “The No.1 Greatest Musical” on Channel 4’s 100 Greatest Musicals.
Directed by David Gilmore and choreographed by former Strickly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips the West End production will be playing at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre until the 12th August 2017.
