Grease by : Stephen Tropiano
In the summer of 1978; Grease was the word. On Friday; June 16; 1978; the movie musical made a major comeback when a big-screen version of the long-running rock-and-roll stage musical; Grease; opened in theaters around the country. With a talented cast led by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John and a memorable score featuring a mixture of oldies-style rock and contemporary pop; Grease captured the look and the feel of an old-fashioned Hollywood musical while taking audiences on a nostalgic trip back to the days of poodle skirts; malt shops; drag racing; and sock hops.
Stephen Tropiano takes a fascinating and revealing look at Grease as a cultural phenomenon - from its humble beginnings as a fringe musical in Chicago; to its unparalleled success on Broadway; to the making of the film that became the highest-grossing movie musical of all time. You will get an in-depth; close-up look at the making of this Hollywood classic and the creative talent in front and behind the camera that made it all happen. Thirty-plus years after its release; Grease is still the word!
