One of America’s favorite Broadway musicals, (helped considerably by the film with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John) is Grease and a new touring revival of the hit show is coming to the Paramount Theater this Friday, January 7 for a three day/five performance run. Starring Eddie Mekka as DJ Vince Fontainne (Carmine the Big Ragu from Laverne & Shirley for you youngun’s under the age of 40) this production features music from both the original stage production and the film. (For those of you unaware, many of the beloved musical hits from Grease were not original to the stage show, but were added to the film: “Hopelessly Devoted to You” and “You’re the One That I Want” being the prime examples.)

Tickets are still available. Don’t be like Sandra Dee…Check it OUT!
