Featuring a young ensemble cast, GREASE: LIVE, a Paramount Television production, reintroduced and reimagined some of the most memorable moments, great music and timeless love story to an entirely new generation garnering more than 12 million viewers, rave reviews and a soundtrack that has been streamed nearly 3.5 million times.
GREASE: LIVE originally aired Sunday, January 31, 2016 on FOX. The star-studded ensemble cast of the critically acclaimed live event includes Julianne Hough ("Rock of Ages") as the angelic "Sandy," Rydell High's most talked-about newcomer; Aaron Tveit ("Les Miserables") as bad boy "Danny Zuko"; Vanessa Hudgens (Broadway's "Gigi") as iconic bad girl "Rizzo"; Keke Palmer (SCREAM QUEENS) as sassy Pink Lady "Marty Maraschino"; Carlos PenaVega ("Big Time Rush") as "Kenickie," Danny's tough-guy sidekick; multi-Platinum Grammy(R) Award-nominated singer and songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen as beauty school dropout "Frenchy"; Kether Donohue ("You're The Worst") as Pink Lady "Jan"; David Del Rio ("Spare Parts") as T-Bird "Putzie"; Jordan Fisher ("Teen Beach") as "Doody"; and Andrew Call (Broadway's "American Idiot") as "Sonny."
The production also featured special cameo appearances by Grammy Award-nominated singer Jessie J; multi-Platinum pop superstar Joe Jonas and pop-disco band DNCE as "Johnny Casino and the Gamblers"; actor and television host Mario Lopez as "Vince Fontaine"; and Grammy Award(R)-winning R&B group Boyz II Men as "Teen Angel," who performed "Beauty School Dropout." Plus, two stars from the original 1978 film Grease, Didi Conn ("Frenchy") and Barry Pearl ("Doody"), made special appearances.
GREASE: LIVE was produced by Paramount Television. Acclaimed film, television and theater producer Marc Platt ("Wicked," "Into the Woods") executive-produced, Tony Award-nominated director Thomas Kail ("Hamilton," "In the Heights") led the production's stage direction and Alex Rudzinski ("Dancing with the Stars") served as the live television director. Broadway writers Robert Cary ("Anything but Love," "Ira & Abby") and Jonathan Tolins ("Buyer & Cellar," "The Last Sunday in June") penned the LIVE television adaptation.
