Broadway couple Hunter Foster and Jennifer Cody will, respectively, direct and choreograph the production. The couple starred in the 1994 Tony-nominated Broadway revival of Grease for several years, during which the two were married.
"We have been fans of Hunter and Jen for a long time and are excited about the energy and special vision they are bringing to this well-loved show," producer Carolee Baxter said in a statement.
Set in 1959 at Rydell High School, Grease, according to press notes, "follows the lives of ten working-class teenagers as they follow their hearts and their dreams. While the musical score recreates the sounds of a bygone era, the story deals with issues that are still current – falling in love, fitting in, never giving up on your goals."
The production will also have musical direction by Edward G. Robinson, lighting design by Charlie Morrison, sound design by Eric Alexander Collins and Brian L. Hunt, hair design by Brittnye Batchelor, costumes by Kimberly Genna Bryant and properties by Aline Johnson. Bill Yates, Jr. will serve as the technical director.
Casting will be announced at a later date.
