Grease is a room-filling spectacle tinged with nostalgia – review

What do you do with a show like Grease? It’s so well known – largely for the 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John although the original 1971 musical still has a substantial following – that it’s hard to imagine anyone doing anything radically different with the staging. Director Nikolai Foster doesn’t attempt to reinvent the wheel, although this Grease does draw heavily from the original, slightly grittier musical – while thankfully retaining many of the crowd-pleasing songs which were introduced for the film version.
