Reality Series Greases the Broadway Box Office
Grease: You're the One That I Want has demonstrated that Grease is the hot ticket that you want. In its first two days of advance sales, the Broadway revival, whose leads are being cast by the aformentioned NBC reality series, sold $1.3 million worth of seats — not bad at all for a production with no "names" and not even a theater to call home yet. Kathleen Marshall, the director of Grease and a judge on the NBC show, tells the New York Daily News, "It is unbelievable, just crazy." Meaning, a blast, boss, Fat City, radioactive and unreal!
