Listen to Music Released by Grease: Live on Their Vine
Fox's upcoming presentation of Grease: Live, which will air January 31, has released snippets of the show's songs via its Vine account (the snippets, however, are not sung by members of the Grease: Live cast). Fans can now get revved up with a few lines from "You're the One That I Want," "We Go Together," "Summer Nights," and "Hopelessly Devoted to You."
The telecast, directed by Hamilton's Thomas Kail, will include music supervision by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (If/Then, Next to Normal), production design by Drama Desk Award winner David Korins (Misery, Hamilton), and costume design by Tony Award winner William Ivey Long (Cinderella, On the Twentieth Century). Zach Woodlee (Glee, Annie) will lend choreography.
Adapted by playwrights Robert Cary and Jonathan Tolins, the broadcast production of Grease is based on the original stage musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey and its 1978 screen adaptation.
The cast stars Aaron Tveit as Danny Zuko and Julianne Hough as Sandy, with Vanessa Hudgens as Betty Rizzo, Carlos PenaVega as Kenickie, Keke Palmer as Marty, Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchy, Kether Donohue as Jan, David Del Rio as Putzie, Mario Lopez as Vince Fontaine, and Ana Gasteyer as Principal McGee.
