Fans of everyone’s problematic fave, rejoice! You now have plans for this Tuesday night that do not include an illegal and technologically sketchy livestream link to watch Grease: Live – because you’ll be watching it on the Win network instead!
Following in the footsteps of NBC’s recent hit format, FOX will air a live presentation of audience favourite, Grease, this coming weekend.
Starring Broadway boy Aaron Tveit as Danny Zuko and East High Wildcat alumni Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo, the production promises all the songs we know and love, as well as enough hair product to literally glue you to your seats.
Advertised as airing in Victoria at 8.30pm on Tuesday 2 February, I recommend that you check your local TV guide for the official listing, because time zone differences confuse me.
Good luck, friends.
Ignore the misogyny of the show and invest your emotional expectations instead in the thought of Tveiters appearing in front of you wearing tight black clothing.
I’ll be watching with the equal hope that the televised production will encourage a new generation of theatre lovers to join our ranks, but also a little bit because this broadcast could be a well-intentioned disaster.
