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!

Not disappointed, Oct 17, 2007
reviewer: J Fischer from Norco, CA
Traveled to NYC from CA to see Grease. Watched all of the eliminations on TV. The play was fabulous, however i felt the wrong Danny (for sure) and Sandy (not too sure) were selected. The proof was in NYC. The supporting cast carried the show, however at the end, Danny and Sandy finally came alive and performed to the audience. Sandy is very "lack lustre" and Danny was not believable as the "LEADER OF THE PACK" Just not "macho" enough. I feel both runners up on the TV show should have won. The orchestra was the "top dog" the conductor kept us smiling and taping our feet. All in All thanks for a wonderful evening at the show.

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.

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.

Scintillating Show, Nov 02, 2007
reviewer: Patricia Kappes from Melrose, NY 12121
I've followed the progress of talented Max Crumm and Laura Osnes on TV the Winter of '06, cheered for them all along, and was thrilled to be able to see them on Broadway on 10/13/07. The show was FANTASTIC, the singing and acting beyond words! I think Max and Laura, and the entire cast, are extremely talented, the music and the entire ambience of the show, was breathtaking. I would see it again and again, whenever possible. Am so proud of them, and all they've accomplished! The theater is charming, the seats were great, and I would definitely take my mother and/or children to see this show. The cast received standing ovations, and my friend and I walked out dancing on clouds!! God Bless Max, Laura, and all.
