Truly wonderful! Grease is still the word! (by redsoxjv13)
I had just graduated from high school when the movie Grease was released in 1978. I have watched the movie at least 20 times and have seen a Broadway production. This has been my favorite for so long and I am absolutely blown away by what I just watched over the last 3 hours. The talent was amazing. I feel that they paid tribute to the original, but actually made it better with a few minor changes. Vanessa Hudgens was perfect as Rizzo and Julianne Hough was a close second as Sandy. It was great to see Didi Cohn, the original Frenchy. I am giving 10 stars because I was completely amazed by the <more>
show, but I do have to mention one negative. It is my opinion that Aaron Tveit, who played Danny Zuko was miscast. His singing voice and his acting were significantly less appealing than the rest of the cast. His dancing was great, though. I also think he looked too old for the part. The sets were amazing. The choreography was sensational. I want to see it again!
Amazing Grease version for the new Generation (by yourj)
I am a teen of the 2010s and had my childhood throughout the 2000s so my most beloved musical will be "High School Musical" but I've known the musical Grease for a long time now since I discovered it in 2012 and to my point of view, this version re-introduced Grease to our generation. Grease is among my favorite musicals and this version proved that Grease really is the word.In my opinion, the 1978 movie and Grease:Live shouldn't be compared to each other. Why? Because both of them were just remakes of the original Broadway show in 1972. One for the big screen and one for <more>
the television. So they really are different. Some fans of the movie may complain but they should remember that the movie itself was just a version of the original and Grease: Live is a version of the Broadway show with some parts that were took from the movie version. But I understand why they react that way. I just don't like is that they don't include the original when comparing.I just loved the fact that some of the big stars from Hollywood were part of the show. It included former iconic teen stars, Vanessa Hudgens who portrayed Gabriela in the iconic musical "High School Musical", Keke Palmer from the Nickelodeon sitcom, True Jackson VP and Carlos PenaVega from Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush. Also appeared in the show were three of the decade's big music artists, Carly Rae Jepsen and Jessie J as well as the group band DNCE. It also included Mario Lopez with the Broadway star and Les Miserables actor Aaron Tveit and Dancing with the stars contestant-turned-judge Julianne Hough. It really wasn't just a show with unknown celebrities. Many were famous stars and it helped Grease: Live to get more attention from the younger audience.Speaking of the cast's performance, Everyone in the cast performed well. It may not be the greatest but they still did great. From major roles to minor roles they portrayed their characters well. I love the portrayal of Keke Palmer as Marty because she made Marty flirty, more bitchy and at the same time classy. Though her accent might really sound odd but I actually do not think she's overacting it. The way she acted is very theatrical for me. Another character that stood out to me was Elle Mclemore's portrayal as Patty Simcox. She really slayed it! I also liked Carly Rae Jepsen's portrayal of Frenchy. I never imagined her acting because she's a pop singer, but she really had a talent in acting. Vanessa's portrayal of Rizzo made her character more relatable. You can feel Rizzo on the way she portrayed.I also liked how they rearranged the plot to make things more understandable, like the reason why Sandy left the dance floor where in the 1978 movie, it wasn't clear. The musical performances were great too. I loved how they included "Freddy my Love" and "Those magic changes" where in the movie version, they were removed. "Those Magic Changes" were included though in the movie version but it was just among the background music during the Prom scene. I don't like the performance of Boyz II Men in Beauty School Dropout. It sounded very 1990s boy band. They should've sung ala The Platters. The newly added song number sung by Carly also sounded 2010s. Though I don't care about it because some of the added songs in the movie version also sounded very 70s. It included the opening song, Hopelessly Devoted to You and You're the one that I want, as well as the movie version of Born to the Hand Jive.The scene where the old met the new frenchie is so oddly satisfying for me.I don't like though the idea of the so called "Integration of the Cast". I knew that it was done to avoid some misunderstanding towards the black community but they should have sticked to the historical truth. But i'm fine with it. Over all this was a great version of the Broadway show Grease, both production wise and acting wise. Great job.
This production put us in the center of the action. I have seen the stage version and the movie. The staging on various sets enabled the director to expand his vision of the stage play. Viewing the dance numbers with the talent is a 10, but think about the staging of the actors as they rode from stage to stage via the bus. The production crew had to be choreographed. Live shots in the rain can not be easy; however the play must go on! Bravo to cast and crew for bringing this delightful musical center stage to TV Land. We, the viewers, need more musical high points as we experienced tonight. <more>
There are way to many loud explosions in the real world. Directors, Producers, allow everyone to have a front row seat. Let our children share the joy and excitement of the Broadway/Cinema musical. Actors shout out to anyone who will listen "we need to put on a show," and that there accomplished actors who can sing out with spirit and love.In a sometimes gloomy world a ray of sunshine pokes through and brightens your day. Cast and crew you brought a ray of sunshine into our living room tonight. Thank you.
A Solid Version of "Grease" With Some Technical Issues Updated (by atlasmb)
Having watched all of the live musical performances on TV since NBC's production of "Sound of Music Live!" in 2013, I was anxious to see what Fox could do with "Grease: Live". The movie "Grease" is a favorite of mine. Like many others, I have watched the film many times.All in all, I was pleased with the show. Most of the issues were technical, and there was only one actor who I will not name whose performance disappointed me.It was the sound that tempers my enthusiasm for this production. In some cases, leading vocals were not quite loud enough. There was <more>
a total loss of sound during a portion of the "Hand Jive" number. And the big disappointment was the poor sound quality during Julianne Hough's Sandy performance of "Hopelessly Devoted To You"--what would have been the highlight of the show due to Julianne's soaring vocals. It sounded like a microphone problem, but wouldn't they have two mikes in case one failed?The logistics of staging "Grease: Live" are mind boggling. I appreciate the way they took the viewer backstage and otherwise revealed the layout and the mechanics of moving cast and crew.The cast is extremely talented. There were too many great performances to list them all, but I want to single out Elle McLemore whose Patty Simcox was inspired.The storyline mostly followed the movie, but there were numerous deviations. The choices made resulted in a very enjoyable hybrid.A DVD would be a nice addition to one's personal collection of musicals, but they will first have to clean up or remake Julianne's solo.7/14/16: Received 10 Emmy nominations.Updated 10/4/2019: I watched this performance again on pay-per-view. I am pleased to say that Julianne Hough's performance of "Hopelessly Devoted to You" has been fixed. I don't know what other edits might have been made. Since there are no commercials or transitions to commercials , some of the backstage glimpses are lost. But I really enjoyed my second viewing. I noticed some things I had missed the first time through. And Vanessa Hudgens' talent really stands out. Her performance of "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" is a highlight.
For the most part, Fox really got it right. The two lead actors were up to the roles. Both could really sing, dance and act. What a far cry from the lame leads on NBC's versions of The Wiz, Peter Pan and Sound of Music. The staging and sets were outstanding. The camera-work was first rate and the audio mix was very good.Julianne Hough was absolutely outstanding. A very young 27, beautiful and talented performer, she was a perfect choice to play Sandy. I cannot think of anyone who could have done it better.The guy playing Danny - Aaron Tveit - had the right looks and build for the role and <more>
is an excellent singer-dancer-actor.The supporting cast was enthusiastic and well-rehearsed.Except for a 20 second audio loss during Hand Jive, there was no major technical glitch. Unlike NBC, the cameramen did not wind up in each other's shots. The movie was virtually all white as fit the setting of 1959. This Grease version tried a little too hard to integrate the cast and with the exception of the Coach, that really didn't work. It was the equivalent of sticking a bunch of Whites or Asians in The Wiz or Purlie. However, the forced diversity wasn't too glaring and didn't hurt the show overall.Fox's Grease Live sets a new standard for live TV musicals. Congrats to all - cast, crew, producers.
As a viewer of the previously aired TV musicals such as The Sound of Music, and Peter Pan, i can definitely say that this is by far the best. The set was very unique and beautifully executed. While some of the performers may have seemed at times like they were copying the original cast, they each put a unique touch on their characters, and thats what a good actor should be able to do. In all honesty the biggest flaw i had with this was boyz II men trying to make a failed attempt at a comeback. Sorry Nathan, Shawn, and Wanya, but maybe we should leave Frankie Avalon to directing the rest of <more>
the Beauty School Dropouts. Overall the show was unique and entertaining to watch. I would definitely give it a watch at least once or twice.
Grease Live was as awesome a show on TV as one could get! (by tavm)
As someone who watched the 1978 movie version several times in his lifetime, here's what I thought of the recent live version on Fox-The Good: Expanding roles for Eugene and Patty though I'm miffed at why Patty-the cheerleader-is wearing glasses. Popular girls didn't wear them, at least not that frequently! . And also making them a couple at the end. Eugene helping the T-Birds in the Thunder Road sequence. The cheerleading tryouts between Patty and Sandy. Julianne Hough playing the latter. Seeing Barry Pearl-movie Doody-playing the producer of "National Bandstand". <more>
Seeing Didi Conn-movie Frenchy-playing Vi the waitress especially when she councils current Frenchy-Carly Rae Jepsen-on her career choices. Also liked Carly's song added for the show. Also loved when Didi said, "I miss high school!" during the dance sequence. And, lastly, Rizzo's bonding with Sandy after Thunder Road. Most of the show overall. The Bad: What's with the audio going off during some of the "Born to Hand Jive" number? And didn't believe Sandy's reason for not continuing with the dance-being camera shy-until she mentioned later of not wanting known of her parents' being lied to. The not-so-bad: Mario Lopez accidentally ID'ing his show as "American Bandstand" instead of "National Bandstand" in one scene! This was a mostly awesome show and I wouldn't mind getting the DVD when it comes out. So on that note, Grease is still the word!
Just watched this tonight for the first time and...... WOW (by jlloyd-chadwick)
This is the fist time I have watched this since seeing the original one with Travolta many too many years ago.I thought it was very well choreographed and was in keeping with the original in many ways.It is something that no matter how young or old you are you will always find yourself tapping along with the songs and even singing them if you know them.A must watch for anyone, especially the "younger" generations as this shows just how good movies used to be before all the newer CGI inputs.Thanks you to all those that made this version possible JL
Pretty Amazing, All Things Considered (by Hitchcoc)
I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. This is a really nicely done musical. The performances are solid and the logistics must have been beyond the pale. The scene changes are outstanding. Compared to others of these live TV productions, this is far superior. The singing is really strong with an occasional dropout, but that's to be expected. One thing that I kept thinking is that Aaron Tveit looked kind of old to be Danny. I checked and apparently he's thirty-three. Of course, that is a challenge they had to face. As demanding as this musical is and the fact that <more>
so much professionalism is required, there aren't many true teenagers who could hold up under the pressure. If John Travolta goofed up, he could do it over again sixteen times. Grease has grown on me over the years and it was really fun to hear the songs again.
