Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey came up with the idea for Grease over a beer at a party in 1970. They decided to write a musical about high school life in the 1950s, when teens were wild about the kind of rock ‘n’ roll music that happened to be playing at the party that evening. When Warren lost his job as a store manager, he found himself with time on his hands, so he sat at his typewriter and began writing Grease, which would become the longest-running musical in the history of Broadway. Grease premiered in 1971 at the Kingston Mines Theater in Chicago. A year later, it debuted on Broadway. Critics, notably those from the New York Times, complained about the quality of the show, but audiences loved it. The story opens on the first day of a new school year in the late 1950s. The characters are teenagers from different backgrounds who share a desire for friendship and love. The musical talks about growing up and dreams for the future. These are eternal themes and the reason for the show’s continued success even 47 years after its premiere. The two main characters are the roguish Danny, a greaser and a rebel, and the strait-laced Sandy, an innocent “good girl” type. Grease has been performed in theatres all over the world with great success. The worldwide success of the musical was also helped by the 1978 film by director Randal Kleiser, in which the lead roles were played by the upand- coming young actor John Travolta as Danny and the Australian-born singer Olivia Newton-John as Sandy. The film version of Grease is one of the five most popular film musicals of all time, and the accompanying soundtrack – on vinyl and cassette – sold millions of copies. The songs “You’re the One That I Want”, “Summer Nights” and “Hopelessly Devoted to You” topped the charts all over the world and are still among the best-selling singles of all time. Grease was also a big hit in Slovenia, and a lot of people were keen to learn the steps to the dances they had seen in the film.
