The new Broadway production of Grease will be recorded on August 16, with a CD release on the Masterworks Broadway label set for October 2. The show, which is directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall, is in previews at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre and will open officially on August 19.

It stars Max Crumm as Danny, Laura Osnes as Sandy, Ryan Patrick Binder as Doody, Susan Blommaert as Miss Lynch, Jeb Brown as Vince Fontaine, Stephen R. Buntrock as Teen Angel, Daniel Everidge as Roger, Allison Fischer as Patty, Robyn Hurder as Marty, Lindsay Mendez as Jan, Jenny Powers as Rizzo, Jose Restrepo as Sonny, Matthew Saldivar as Kenickie, Jamison Scott as Eugene, and Kirsten Wyatt as Frenchy. Crumm and Osnes were chosen for the roles of Danny and Sandy after 12 weeks of nationally televised auditions on the NBC-TV talent competition Grease: You're the One That I Want.

This production of Grease features the original book, music, and lyrics by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, plus four songs that were written by others for the 1978 film version: "Sandy," "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "You're the One That I Want," and "Grease."
