The Broadway Original
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 02/22/2001

"The original Broadway version of Grease is much different that the movie version. The chief difference is that the biggest hits from the movie, the title song, "You're The One That I One Want" & "Hopelessly Devoted To You", were written specifically for the movie and do not appear here. The play also had a harder edge to it, taking place in an urban environment and was more explicit. Fans of the movie will recognize songs like "Greased Lightnin'", "Summer Nights", "Beauty School Dropout", "Born To Hand Jive" and "We Go Together" but other standouts include "All Choked Up", "Those Magic Changes" & "Freddy My Love"."
This is the REAL Grease.

"Grease, here in its original form, is an adventurous, raw, rowdy, INSIGHTFUL show that paints a very accurate picture of a pivotal moment in American history when rock and roll was giving birth to the Sexual Revolution. Grease is not a silly, brainless 50s parody, but is instead a smart, insightful, alternative piece of theatre (inspired in many ways by HAIR), with real muscle, attitude, rawness, and a thrilling, subversive, over-sexed energy. If you want to hear what Grease SHOULD sound like, if you want to hear the real sound of early rock and roll, get this original 1972 recording. Forget the awful revival, and forget the movie (as fun as it may be) -- THIS is Grease. [...]"
