Grease has got to be the best musical and movie soundtrack of all time for me. A story about a group of 50’s greasers and bobby soxers.. back when music and cars were a life style. I absolutely love the 50’s… the style and attitude..the movie drive-ins, malt shops diners, pencil skirts and classic rock and roll.. this is definitely my favorite decade
Anyway back to Grease..it was actually a Broadway stage musical in the early 70’s before it was made as a movie in 1978. Its been 30+ years since its release and this classic has remained one of my fav movies of all time since I first watched it on a TV special when I was in the 4th grade?! gosh I feel old… and no matter how many times you watch it, it never gets old! I might have watch it nearly 100 times now…
So I was absolutely thrilled when I heard that the Grease musical was finally coming to Vancouver and quickly secured tickets for Halloween night which also finalized my decision on my costume as Pink Lady. I love everything about the 50’s and this was my chance to go all out with 50s wear. Also it was in my favorite color Pink! Well the musical was a blast and entertaining with soooo much energy.. Id love to do it all over again..
oh and there was even a theater release of a Grease sing-a-long version during the summer. Its like
karaoke on the big screen with lyrics on the bottom and having the entire audience participate! how geeky fun is that!
**on a side note Johnny Depp is the HOTTEST bad ass greaser in Cry Baby
