Fox's "Grease! Live" = The Best Live TV Musical Yet

2 February 2016 7:10 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

My name is Dancin' Dan and I Loved Grease! Live.

When Fox announced they were getting into the live musical game, with "America's Favorite Musical", Grease, there was reason to be skeptical. True, the home of American Idol seemed like a more natural fit for a live musical than NBC, but Grease is perhaps an even more iconic show than The Sound of Music, and we all know how that one turned out for NBC.

But then casting announcements kept rolling in, and they felt shockingly on point: Broadway heartthrob Aaron Tveit as bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold Danny Zuko. Dancing With the Stars alum Julianne Hough as eternal good girl Sandy Young. High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens as bad girl Rizzo, pop star and Broadway Cinderella Carly Rae Jepsen as air-headed beauty school dropout Frenchie, former child star Keke Palmer as sex-obsessed Marty.... could this actually work?

Grease: Live Review: Fox's Magical Remake Had Groove, It Had Meaning

31 January 2016 8:06 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The biggest challenge for any remake/reboot/reimagining is putting some distance between itself and its beloved source material.

And so while Fox’s Grease: Live used elements from the original stage production on Sunday night, its biggest challenge was enchanting fans of the iconic 1978 John Travolta-Olivia Newton John movie adaptation.

30 January 2016 10:18 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Sunday's performance of Grease: Live will have everything: A live studio audience, Boyz II Men, High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens, pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen, and now, cameos from the cast of the film version of Grease. According to the Associated Press, Didi Conn, who played Frenchy, and Barry Pearl, who played Doody, will make small cameos in the stage show as a waitress at a malt shop and a TV producer, respectively. It's a nice gesture to the past, and also chance for Conn, who sounds very much like Frenchy, to give the perfect description of Carly Rae Jepsen: "I started to cry. I think partly it was 'That could be my daughter that I never had,'" Conn said of meeting Jepsen. "She is absolutely yummy-adorable." »
