What a triumph. After three years of watching NBC do summer stock on national television, Fox swooped in and stole the live musical format right out from underneath them.
The sets and staging were absolutely the best part of the show, proving that a live musical could look as much like a movie as it could just a regular Broadway musical. All of that credit goes to director Mark Plait.
So it concludes with the whole cast driving off the set in golf carts and into a fairground, where they continue to perform We Go Together. It’s delightful.
This is just how we wanted Grease: Live to end.
