What’s Grease about?
After an electrifying summer fling, 1950s greaser Danny Zuko and girl-next-door Sandy Dumbrowski are unexpectedly reunited when Sandy is transferred to Rydell High School for their senior year. Keen to play it cool in front of his friends the ‘Burger Palace Boys’ (the T-Birds from the movie), Danny breaks Sandy’s heart when he puts his reputation before her feelings.
Much more than just a slice of American pie, this production of Grease dives into the tough, gritty world of sexual politics and simmering gangs of 1950s Chicago. Still with all the sparkle, energy and attitude that made the movie a timeless classic, the stage version cranks the story up a gear.
All your favourite characters from the movie are here – Danny, Sandy, Rizzo, Kenickie, Vince Fontaine, Doody, Roger, Sonny, Frenchy, Jan, Marty, Cha Cha and even Patty Simcox!
Can Danny and Sandy’s love survive senior year, or will Rydell High tear them apart? With friendship, heartbreak, pregnancy scares and high-octane dance numbers, Grease is primed and ready to inject some sizzling heat back into those Summer Nights at the Dominion Theatre.
Grease is the soundtrack to all our teenage summers. Along with songs from the original stage show – Summer Nights, Beauty School Dropout, Mooning, Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee and We Go Together - this version also includes the songs you’ll love from the movie, including: Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Grease is the Word and You’re The One That I Want.
It’s hard to believe now, but the movie version of Grease was only nominated in a single category at the 1978 Academy Awards. Hopelessly Devoted to You narrowly missed out for Best Original Song to “Last Dance” from Thank God It’s Friday.
The stage version recently opened in London, so watch this space next awards season!
Five fascinating Facts about Grease
How well do you know Danny, Sandy and Rydell High? Here are five fun facts to impress your musical theatre peers:
1. Danny Zuko was brought to life on the big screen by John Travolta…but on stage, he’s been played by some equally famous movie stars – no less than Patrick Swayze (Broadway) and Richard Gere (London).
2. Rumour has it that the movie’s producers wanted to cast the Happy Days actor Henry Winkler as Danny. They also considered Carrie Fisher for the role of Sandy. Imagine how different Summer Nights might have been with ‘The Fonz’ and Sandy wielding light sabres!
3. Grease was a stage show long before it hit the big screens. It opened on Broadway in 1972 – a full six years before making it into cinemas. The movie was originally going to be an animated film – an element that remains in the film’s famous opening credits.
4. Four of the Grease movie stars also appeared on Broadway. John Travolta (Danny) played Doody, Jeff Conaway (Kenickie) played Danny, and Barry Pearl (Doody) played Sonny. Actress Jamie Donnelly was the only person to play the same role on both stage and screen – the role of Jan in the Pink Ladies.
5. Olivia Newton-John was already a star before being cast in the movie version of Grease. In the stage show, Sandy’s full name is Sandy Dumbrowski – this was changed to Sandy Olsen in the film and the script altered to allow Newton-John to keep her Australian accent.

Really good but would liked to have seen more if Peter andre
Oct 14, 2022
There were too many boring songs not from the film. Jason donavons voice was poor. Peter Andre was funny. Rizo was great. Sandy had no sex appeal at the end. Was OK but wouldn't recommend it
Oct 13, 2022
Whether rightly or wrongly for me it was not as true to the movie as I had expected. The movie was my first memory of seeing a movie as a child. I have never missed an opportunity to watch it ever since. Regardless the show was fantastic. Such wonderful young talent and what a bonus in Jason and Peter. I loved it💋
Oct 7, 2022
The show was fantastic! The singers were amazing, the dances and costumes were perfect. Sets were wonderful, overall great watch. 100% would recommend and watch again.
Sep 30, 2022
You evidently can’t take an iconic film and put it on the stage! Enjoyed the show, but it mullered the film. ‘You’re The One That I Want’ was lame.
Sep 27, 2022
I didn’t like it. I know there’s a lot of work behind but I didn’t enjoy it. 2 kids (around9-10) were sitting behind us with their mother and granny, noise and pooling the chairs all the time. But what kids were doing there barely understand or paying attention. Sound wasn’t the best specially when girls were singing, that was screaming or it was from the mics. 22 ppl on the stage, fast movings were very good but apart of that not too much.
Sep 26, 2022
Absolutely stunning, brilliant performances by all the cast
Sep 23, 2022
Brilliant show. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Sep 13, 2022
Fab performance! Talented,entertaining,enthralling.
Sep 13, 2022
It was an excellent Performance It’s a must see show The artists were amazing
Sep 12, 2022
On Google I read reviews which are realy bad. I don't get it! The actors are great, the singing and dancing is great,... The story is the movie story with some extra's so you get the whole (original) story. Liked it very much, we had a great night at the Dominion Theatre, which is also nice.
Sep 11, 2022
I was expecting to see the live version of the film but there are a few changes. I wasn’t disappointed. The solos showed some fantastic talent. My only complaint is I missed Peter Andre
Sep 11, 2022
We had the best time Lovely voices Funny & exciting to watch
Sep 11, 2022
Absolutely terrible, do not waste your money
Sep 10, 2022
Danny was a terrible singer!
Sep 7, 2022
I see a amateur production of Grease in Newcastle last month that absolutely blew the socks of the performance on Monday in London. It was terrible type casting & so far away from the actual storyline of Grease.
Sep 7, 2022
It’s a good show but not the best I’ve seen in London.personally (only my opinion) I felt it was a amateur performance.reason being was that a couple of actors forgot their lines and the dancing was out of sync.but on a good note,the singing was fantastic and the costumes & stage set up was great.Peter Andre was amazing,he was very funny!
Sep 4, 2022
A bit disappointing as I absolutely loved the film. There were songs that I hadn’t heard before, dialogue wasn’t clear and there were scenes that were not in the film..eg the police man and Danny! ‘Sandy’ hardly was on stage and I still don’t know who acted as Vince Fontaine! My 10yr old niece felt the same as me as she loved the film too but was disappointed in the musical. There was some good dancing and singing but could have been better.
Disappointed Grease Fan
Sep 4, 2022
Very disappointed with the show. The story was very far from the film, the name of the t-birds was different. The story that was thete was very rushed and not engaging. Advertised as Peter Andre and Jason Donovan were in the show and they were not. You were not allowed to sing along with the songs. Overall hugely disappointed, would not recommend seeing this.
Aug 30, 2022
Was expecting Peter Andre in the show, disappointed with the acting. Danny had no charisma as in the movie
Aug 28, 2022
A good mix of the old story line and songs mixed in with some new songs. The dancing was amazing, nice production. Great singalong at the end too!

Firstly we have seen grease many times at the Dominican theatre. All were amazing. Sadly this show would have been one I expected to see at darford perhaps, not a London theatre. No one famous . Was expecting either Peter or Jason but sadly not. Danny and sandy should have been more distinguished. We struggled to see who was leading between Danny and kinnecky. The female singers were brilliant, very strong.. The break in the show was upsetting as didn’t know what was wrong, and wasn’t told. People started to leave as was worried!! All in all thumbs down I’m afraid. Didn’t ever think I would say that about my favourite film:show of all time.
Aug 27, 2022
Great musical but disappointed that Peter Andre and Jason Donovan did not appear.
Aug 26, 2022
Feel good show .Lovely performance.
Aug 26, 2022
What a fabulous show!! Absolutely loved every minute of it, from start to finish - it was a proper ‘feel good’ show. Loved the mega mix at the end so we could have a sing-a-long and dance 🥰 the only reason I didn’t give the full amount of stars was because we didn’t get Peter Andrè but the stand in played a great part ❤️
Aug 25, 2022
The show was fantastic,great singing. Very clear and very clear actions Fabulous.
Aug 24, 2022
Good singing but some of the acting a bit questionable
Aug 22, 2022
After my initial apprehension as Danny & Sandy didn’t have the correct hair colouring as the movie . It was a wonderful high energy show . Fantastic dancing & singing . Absolutely loved it. . I was visiting from New Zealand
Aug 21, 2022
Fantastic night, great singers and dancers
Aug 21, 2022
Really enjoyed the show first class acting from start to finish you could not help but sing along great afternoon

Aug 20, 2022
First of all, Big Thanks to all the performers! Each of them were carrying their character's personality - they played so well! It was super an enjoyable evening!
Aug 20, 2022
Not as great as the movie but the music singing and dancing was great. Just the story and speaking was just not like the movie. The theatre was great and clean also easy to get too
Aug 19, 2022
This has to be one of the worst shows I've seen, I would have left at half time if not for my kids being there. My son fell asleep as did I at times. Total waste of £240
Aug 18, 2022
Sadly not what we expected. Couldn’t wait to see this in theatre as it’s such an iconic film and one of my all time favourites but a lot of differences compared to the actual film. Certain songs were in different places and some songs didn’t feature at all. A lot of their own songs that weren’t in the actual film. Sandy was brunette and not blonde and Danny didn’t seem the right fit. Sandy and Danny didn’t seem to have the same loving relationship as they did in the film til the end. Was a good performance but definitely nothing compared to the film.
Aug 7, 2022
This stage show was amazing from start to finish. The ultimate feel good production. All the cast were brilliant and Peter Andre as Vince was superb . Totally recommend
Aug 5, 2022
Bought tickets for my sister for her 40th who said it was awesome!!!! Thank you to the brilliant singers, actors and dancers.
Aug 4, 2022
How can I write a review? it is impossible! There are no words to express how magical, fun, full of hope and joy this show is. Will see it again ... for sure. I am even a happier person now that I have seen this. And I was happy before. Amazing cast, energy ... really, really ... it is DREAMY!
Aug 3, 2022
A real feel good show, amazing dancing, amazing singing. Definitely recommended
Jul 22, 2022
Good performance by all but missed the strength of John Travolta”s voice in the lead role . Enjoyed it.
Jul 21, 2022
Had a fab evening watching Grease, brilliant from start to finish! Loved see Peter Andre too & everyone on stage were amazing! Well done 👏🤩
Jul 19, 2022
Music was great and the singers were fabulous especially rizzo. Extremely disappointed that Peter Andre was not in it!! When I booked it said he was doing that night! Wouldn't have bought the nearer seats had I known! Shame there was no car race !
Jul 18, 2022
A lively and fun performance marred somewhat by questionable sound quality. It was so loud there was at times an element of distortion which made it difficult to hear the words being sung or spoken.
Jul 16, 2022
Absolutely great show.we had such a good time . Loved dancing n singing at the end of the show
Jul 15, 2022
Fantastic show , brilliant choreography, staging , a real feel good factor evening , the cast worked so hard , fab dancing and singing , all round entertainment , congratulations 👏
Jul 15, 2022
Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the show. We were sat near the back in circle seats but still the view was brilliant. Would definitely recommend.
Jul 15, 2022
Thoroughly enjoyed it sound was a bit dodgy in places but still a great show and not woke at all which I had heard it was
