Grease Is The Word As Ticket Sales Soar
American theatre fans love the taste of GREASE it seems - advance sales for the upcoming musical revival have passed the $1 million (GBP513,000) mark in just two days.
The production won't open on Broadway until 24 July (07), but that hasn't deterred fans, who have been amped up for the revival by a new US TV talent search to find the show's leading man and lady.
The producers of reality contest YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I WANT hope to find their SANDY and DANNY from thousands of hopefuls who have auditioned for the roles played on the big screen by OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN and JOHN TRAVOLTA.
The show's Sunday (07JAN07) night premiere was watched by 11.6 million viewers.
