    As Seen on TV! Danny and Sandy 4-Ever and Ever

    Ben Brantley

    August 20, 2007: I am sorry to report that the limp new production of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s “Grease,” which opened last night at the Brooks Atkinson Theater, is not governed by the rules of audience control that applied to “Grease: You’re the One That I Want,” the reality TV show through which this revival cast its stars.

    How anything can be so perky and yet so bland is yet another mystery for the ages. It appears that the rest of the company was cast to keep the youngsters from looking bad in comparison.

    The most dismal thing about this Grease is that aside from the two discoveries plucked from a mediocre TV talent pool and thrust into this sorry walk-through, no-one appears to be trying very hard. Like the drag-queeny wig slapped on Sandy when she finally conforms to the cool-kid ethos by unleashing the bad-girl within to win Danny, it all seems somewhat counterfeit.

    Without magnetic performances, interest wanes in whether Danny and Sandy will couple up. Chills don't start multiplying, antsiness does.

    Grease is the word on Broadway, again. And it's better than ever. The second major revival of this sweet, nostalgic show about high school life in 1959 opened last night at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Somehow it feels like a freshly minted hit: one part show, and two parts party where everybody's invited.

  • HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW OF Grease

    Tackily produced and utterly lacking the sort of fun comic spark that the original production and certainly the movie possessed (though not the most recent Broadway revival in 1994), this is a Grease that only will be appreciated by young TV viewers who don't know any better.
