Grease through the years
The show was originally performed in 1971 in Chicago and immediately became a success making its New York debut the following year. That initial run would earn the production 7 Tony Award nominations. In 1973, Grease would make its West End debut at the New London Theatre (now the Gillian Lynne Theatre).
In 1978 the smash-hit musical film of the same name was released. The film starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. The soundtrack would go on to become the second best selling soundtrack of the year and would earn the film an Academy Award nomination.
The show has undergone many changes, modifications and different iterations over the years. Some changes were made to update the piece, to make it more suitable for school-age audiences, or to incorporate aspects from the film. The show has enjoyed numerous revivals and international productions. It returned to the West End in 1993 and again in 2007. The 2007 run of Grease at London’s Piccadilly Theatre would go on to become the theatre’s longest running production. Several UK tours have also taken place including one in 2017 and the current 2019 Grease UK tour.
