FRIDAY MUSIC FIX: GREASE

Grease John Travolta Modern Gay Movies

I can’t recall the first time that I watched the 1978 film Grease but I do know that when I look back on my childhood, “You’re the one that I want” is the song playing over my montage of memories. When I was 10-years-old I dressed up like Danny Zuko for a 6-month period and forced all family members, neighbours and school friends to watch me re-inact every moment and song from the 255 minute long movie.  I was totally infatuated by John Travolta and swore that when I grew up I would be exactly like him, in every way. Although I didn’t grow up to be a singer or an actor, it turns out that John Travolta and I have other things in common….

This week Grease The Musical opened in Sydney and I was thrilled to have been invited to the premiere. Starring the very handsome, Rob Mills as Danny Zuko and uber talented Gretel Scarlett as Sandy, the show was a sing-a-long spectacular. I had to remind myself that people weren’t there to hear my rendition of “Look at me, I’m Sandra Dee” but thankfully there were moments when audience participation was encouraged.  Although die-hard fans might be aware of the inconstancies between the movie and the musical, overall the show was a fun and entertaining night out.
