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!

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. Pat Kappes/Melrose, NY

Wow! What a performance by these two! Ashley and Derek are wonderful and the best fit for these roles. The producers got it quite right by casting these two in the show! Also, the rest of the cast was superb! Get on a bus, train or plane and see this show. You won't be sorry. So much fun!

Amazing. I can not tell you how much I loved this show. It is one of Broadway's best rock and roll musical! I can simply not descirbe how good it was. It was that good. It was great seeing the band up ontop of the stage! The cast was one of the best Broadway cast ever. The show was great. The dancing, spectacular and the songs were above awesome! This is a show I would recommend to everyone. Grease is the Word!

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.

I saw the show 4 times in one week and I couldn't get enough of seeing Ace Young as Kenickie! He is SO perfect for this role. If you can make it to see Grease before he leaves on Jan 18th...DO IT! You won't be disapointed!!

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.
