The halls of Rydell High School are exactly as you left them last you saw Sandy, Danny Zuko, Frenchy and Rizzo live onstageor whenever the last time you caught the Sunday-afternoon showing of the 1978 film version on TV. Grease debuted in Chicago in 1971, and at one time, it was the longest-running stage show in history. Its an all-too-familiar tale of greasers, poodle skirts, beauty-school dropouts and T-Birds, but it also brought to light social issues such as teen pregnancy scares and gang violence as well as plenty of sexual exploration through innuendoour favorite is the lyric You know that I aint bragging; shes a real pussy wagon. So gather up the kids (assuming you dont mind exposing them to the term pussy wagon) and take them to see the original High School Musical hey, theres no Zac Efron, but there is Taylor Hicks as Teen Angel. That works, right?
