Today in 1980 the Broadway production of Grease closed in New York City. It grossed over 8 million dollars! The Broadway production is based on the Blockbuster Movie from 1979 (of which I have seen too many times to count!) and is about love, cars and drive-ins. The story line is about working-class teenagers at Rydell High School in 1959. Have you seen the Broadway Production before? I would love to hear from you if you had an opportunity to see this play - please comment.
Seriously though - do you know ANYONE that has not heard of Rydell High or Grease Lightning? I get into such a zone when I watch this movie!! While I watch the movie (and also listen to my favorite 50's tunez) I find myself wishing that I was born during this era. Then I find myself saying to myself: "Self - bobby-socks and dresses? ugh...maybe not!" LOL
One of my favorite parts of the Move is the "Grease Lightning" Scene. Hot! Hot! Hot! I know, it is hokey and the acting is not likely what it could have been, but come on! GO GREASE LIGHTNING! Now the racing that went down in those days is definitely right up my alley! Love to drive fast and like to win as well so yep - right up my alley! This car is systematic...hydromatic (not a word by the wya!)....lame - who choreographed this? kidding kinda - it is funny to see how far we have come in today's cinematography though AND HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED WHAT DANNY DOES WITH THE SIRAN WRAP ON THE CAR HOOD? X-rated even by today' standards - not even notices in the 70's though how ironic: LMAO
I get chills just reading the lyrics. It is so kewl when Sandy takes on the gangsta look and Danni is in is heard-earned letter sweater. You're the one that I want should be brought back don't you think? hmmmm - should I put it into a set list? Who would sing it with me??
Now I have to go get my Grease Fix! The hardest part is deciding which of my collection I will dive into. I have 'Grease on 8-track tape, record, cassette, CD, beta video, VHS video and DVD - I dare you to listen to the soundtrack on a Record and did you know that the original LP has 4 sides? That's right - 2 records. - who wants to have "Grease" movie party with me?? (no dresses required - promise!)
