"Olivia and I wanted to present the opportunity to meet Danny and Sandy in-person with the movie Grease Sing-A-Long, photo op and Q&A,” says John Travolta. “I hope you join us. This is a first!"

Set in the fall of 1958 at fictional Rydell High, Grease is one of the highest-grossing live-action musicals of all time. The film follows innocent new girl Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and bad boy greaser Danny (John Travolta) through their tumultuous love story. After a summer romance, Danny and Sandy are thrown for a loop when they unexpectedly run into each other on the first day back at school. While Danny worries about protecting his bad boy identity around his fellow T-Birds, Sandy turns to her new friends, the Pink Ladies, for support. Together, the two groups use song and dance to help settle their differences and navigate the challenges of adolescence, including peer pressure and self-acceptance. Adapted from the hit 1971 stage musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, Grease explores the trials and tribulations of working-class youth in the 1950s. The score draws on familiar rock ‘n’ roll sounds reminiscent of the time period, working to create a lively, joyous tone, but also leaving room for slower ballads that explore more sensitive themes. Grease went on to inspire a sequel, Grease 2 (1982), and the production Grease: Live, broadcast on Fox in 2016.
