Trivia

The opening credits of "Grease: Live" specifically attributes its script to Bronté Woodard's screenplay for the 1978 film, as adapted by producer Alan Carr. A following credit refers to the stage play by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, but this new version is not based on (or an adaptation of) the play. It is essentially a remake of the film. See more »

As a viewer of the previously aired TV musicals such as The Sound of Music, and Peter Pan, i can definitely say that this is by far the best. The set was very unique and beautifully executed. While some of the performers may have seemed at times like they were copying the original cast, they each put a unique touch on their characters, and thats what a good actor should be able to do. In all honesty the biggest flaw i had with this was boyz II men trying to make a failed attempt at a comeback. Sorry Nathan, Shawn, and Wanya, but maybe we should leave Frankie Avalon to directing the rest of the Beauty School Dropouts. Overall the show was unique and entertaining to watch. I would definitely give it a watch at least once or twice.
