    Grease Live

    Anyone else watch?

    Thoughts?

    Some audio glitches and Mother Nature playing havoc with outdoor scenes aside I really liked it. Probably the best of the recent live productions.

    Casting was great, Julianne Hough looked eerily like Olivia Newton-John. Vanessa Hudgens was OUTSTANDING playing Rizzo less then a day after her father passed away. Cameos by Eve Plumb (Jan Brady), Didi Conn (Frenchy 1978) and Barry Pearl (Doody 19878) were fun. Overall a very good production.

    The little bits that I saw were very good. I made the same comment about Ms. Hough looking very much like Olivia Newton John.

    I had also thought or heard that John Travolta and Olivia Newton John were going to make cameos as well?

    Where was Eve Plumb and why was she in a cameo role?

    Don't know why Eve Plumb was chosen but she played the teacher who helped them rebuild Greased Lightning.

    Only people from the movie cast were Conn and Pearl and when they took bows at the end they were wearing a Pink Lady and T-Bird jacket respectively.
