GREASE The Musical (Event Invitation x Review)

2014-04-25 11.08.48 1

I'm quite the old soul; sometimes, I wish I was born in the 50s or 60s. I prefer things from the 20s to the 70s, whether it's the fashion, music, items, things and even TV shows/movies. My favourite film icon will always be Audrey Hepburn, for example. I like old films, I find that there's something charming about them. And GREASE, is no different. Most people (first) know GREASE from the 1978 musical film, so did I. But did you know that the film version of GREASE was actually from GREASE The Musical in 1971? So of course I was excited and absolutely thrilled to be able to catch GREASE The Musical here in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands on the GALA Opening Night on April 25th. (yes i'm terribly sorry that this post is wayyyyy overdue but I had papers to submit and exams to sit after :( I didn't want to write a slipshod, rushed post because this musical deserves a sounding review. but better late than never I hope?)

I would like to thank BASE Entertainment for the invitation, thank you so much for having me and my partner. :)

Overall, this musical was a visual delight, a treat for the senses. Although I did feel that the two main characters could have had better on stage chemistry, it pales in comparison to the chemistry John Trevolta and Olivia Newton-John had in the film, the musical was still a beautifully done production.

The Sound of Music Musical is coming up soon, it opens on July 11th, and the nostalgia lover in me is also looking very much forward to that one. It was one of my favourite musical films too. Can't wait! I hope you went to catch GREASE The Musical before it ended its run, but it you didn't, let's hope it comes back again some years later. :)
