Although most people associate the title Grease with the 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, the cult classic was adapted from the 1971 musical written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. Originally titled Grease Lightning, the story follows a group of Rydell High students as they explore several controversial issues of adolescence including sex, gangs, the process of entering adulthood and changing personal identities. Renowned musical numbers such as "Summer Nights," "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and "We Go Together" bring the magic of the stage and movies together for a production that has seen several Broadway and West End revivals since its original Chicago debut in 1971.
