Must see for Grease fans - a great time!, Jul 27, 2007
reviewer: Dana T. from Pittsburgh, PA, USA
After watching the show on tv, we had to see the production on Broadway and were there for opening night on Tuesday, July 24, 2007! It was so exciting to see two characters who seemed like friends (after watching them on tv) play the roles of Danny and Sandy. You could tell the whole cast had such a terrific time together and there was a lot of mutual respect among the characters.

I would highly recommend this show to anyone and everyone looking for a good time and great music!

Highly recommend Thalia, just around the corner around 49th street!

July Preview, Jul 30, 2007
reviewer: MS - grammar correction from NJ
There are a few comments I have for several cast members.
Laura: Every solo Laura sang, the audience saw her profile most of the time. She sang most of the time to the side of the stage regardless if the stage was light up or in darkness instead of singing to us (the audience). Laura head was down too many times as well. I hope in the future shows she connect with her audience. She is an excellent singer & can act the part, but she needs to put her heart and feeling out there to the people watching her.
Max appeared not sure of himself. Relax Max and let it happen naturally for you. Best to Laura & Max on future shows. Relax.
Jenny & Matt - you carried the show! Great work! Excellent chemistry!
Ryan, enjoyed for guitar playing. Nice voice.
Daniel, Kirsten, Lindsey - enjoyed your humor.
Robyn, performed well. Believable!
Jose-well played T-bird.
The show was entertaining. I enjoyed the changes of sets & costume.

Great Show! Glad we went., Jul 29, 2007
reviewer: Jason Watkins from Philadelphia, PA USA
I am not a big fan of Broadway shows because I just tend to find the environment crowded and uncomfortable. Our seats were way way up on the mezzanine, but ironically, the view was great! We could see everything going on stage and in the orchestral area instead of the back of another patron's head. The music was well played and conducted if a bit fast. The vocals and performances were top notch, in my opinion, and well portrayed. The surprise was the orchestra conductor. She started the show rockin and dancing to the entire score. I think I watched her more than the cast. All in all a great show. If you go to this performance expecting to watch a live version of the movie, you will wind up disappointed. The scenes and songs are switched up a bit, but in good order. Max and Laura are not John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, but great in their own right. Would I recommend it, yes. Would I take Mom, yes. Broadway shows are not for kids in my opinion.

Loved it!!, Jul 30, 2007
reviewer: Cheryl R. from Clarksville, TN
Just got back from NYC. The sole purpose was to see Grease and I LOVED it. The opening number was awesome and I would recommend it. It's well worth the $$$, long lines and hassle of getting around NYC. I thought Max and Laura did superb jobs, no one will ever top John Travaolta and Olivia N-John but these two shined! The cast was equally great. Great sets, all of the seats were good and the dancing and songs were well done. The "Beauty School Dropout" Angel was great!

The ending was my least favorite part (sort of goofy lines) and I thought Sandy was left out of a few important songs she should have been in; however, it did not dampen the evening. The beginning act gave me chillbumps-it was sooooo good!!! It would go again and again if I could!

I rooted for Max and Laura on TV every week and I was not disappointed. Thanks for a memorable time!!!
