Grease: You’re the one that I want

Another talent quest: this time to find the next Sandy and Danny for the Broadway production of the hit musical “Grease”.

The show will premiere in January on NBC in the US, hosted by Billy Bush (“Access Hollywood”) and Denise Van Outen (stage actress).

The new production of “Grease” will open on Broadway in June 2007 and will be directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award-winner Kathleen Marshall (“The Pajama Game”), who will also be a judge on the TV series along with Jim Jacobs, the co-creator of “Grease” and renowned theatre producer David Ian.

Casting at high schools has almost been completed.
