Tickets to Broadway Revival of Grease Go On Sale Jan. 7

News   Tickets to Broadway Revival of Grease Go On Sale Jan. 7
 
No theatre has been set, and the leads are yet to be cast. That probably would not be a selling point for any other musical revival, but the forthcoming Broadway run of Grease will no doubt get a big boost from NBC's reality casting show "You're The One That I Want," which begins the same day tickets go on sale: Jan. 7.

Tickets will go on sale through Ticketmaster outlets. Group sales for Grease are available now by calling Nederlander Group Sales at (212) 840-3890.

The TV talent competition that will cast the leads in the Jim Jacobs-Warren Casey musical debuts Jan. 7 at 8 PM (ET). "Access Hollywood" co-anchor Billy Bush and U.K. television and theatre star Denise Van Outen host the show.

Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (The Pajama Game) will direct and choreograph the new Broadway production, which is currently selling seats for a July 24 start through Dec. 16. She also serves as a judge for the competition with Grease co-creator Jim Jacobs and theatre producer David Ian.

Paul Nicholas and David Ian Associates, Nederlander Presentations and Phoenix Productions will produce the Broadway run of the show, which begins rehearsals on or about April 1. The capitalization is $10 million.

The musical Grease debuted on Broadway Feb. 14, 1972, and captured the spirit of audiences with its 1950's-set all-American love story of two teens from opposite sides of the fence who fall in love one summer only to discover each other again, this time attending Rydell High School. Will the "bad boy" and the "good girl" be able to rekindle their romance amid the politics of high school? The new Broadway production will feature the smash Jacobs-Casey songs made famous in the original musical, including "Summer Nights," "Greased Lightning" and "We Go Together," as well as the four additional film songs "Grease is the Word," "You're the One That I Want," "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and "Sandy" interpolated into the score.
