Grease is the word and it's back

The forever popular Broadway performance Grease, a musical love story returned for a four-week run Friday night at the La Mirada Theatre of the Performing Arts.

The story is set in the 1950's at the beginning of a school year at Rydell High where 'Greaser' Danny is surprised to be reunited with the girl he had a summer romance with when she transfers to Rydell.

Theater management says Grease has been the most requested show by patrons and at the time of its initial 1972 run in New York set a record for the longest-appearing show at the time on Broadway. 

That record has now fallen and Grease now sits at #16.

The musical features all the hits that appeared on Top 40 radio charts after Grease the movie was released in 1978 including  “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’,” “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” and “You’re the One That I Want,”. 

Grease, the big screen production starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John was a smash hit clearing $366 million from the $6 million spent to produce it. 

Seats for the McCoy-Rigby production are selling fast, however good seats are still available if you act now with prices starting from $14 and up for Students with I.D. and children under age 12, Veterans and Military with I.D. are $20.25 and up while regular seats range from $27 to $95. 

Grease runs through February 12 with evening shows Thursday through Sunday and an afternoon matinee each Saturday and Sunday.
