What I don't understand is this... They are going to do it for Broadway right? And they even have Jim Jacobs who wrote the book for the musical.
Why are they using songs that are from the movie? "You're the one that I want", "Hopeless Devoted to you", and "Sandy" are not in the original Broadway musical. and, some of the people who auditioned who knew their Grease history would know that.
I guess what I am saying is that the songs from the stage show are just as good as the new ones.
The ones they wrote for the movie I guess have a history tied with John Travolta, and Olivia Newton John. They have too much of a pop sound and take us out of the era that is being presented.
There have been many famous faces that have been in various incarnations of Grease, especially on Broadway. NBC did not have to get Miss Newton John.
