Grease CL Recommends

When: Mon., Nov. 26, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: Free admission
Critically dismissed upon its 1978 release (though its box office went through the roof), this adaptation of the Broadway smash soon had its standing revised due to the subsequent releases of such truly dreadful musicals as Xanadu and Can't Stop the Music (both 1980). But for my money, this has always ranked as one of Hollywood's invigorating musicals, brimming with more energy, imagination and dedication than many of the so-called "classic" musicals from the past (I'll take it over stodgy Oscar winners Oliver! and Gigi any day of the week). John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John are enormously appealing as the romantic leads, and the soundtrack remains irresistible. What can I say? In the immortal words belted out by Sha Na Na, I guess I was born to hand jive, baby. Grease is being presented by The Light Factory and Theatre 650 as part of the monthly Cult Movie Mondays series.
