This seems to be the summer of reinvented classic musicals, from the moody Oklahoma! at the Young Vic to a revamped Legally Blonde at Regent’s Park Open Air. In that vein, Nikolai Foster dishes up his “gritty” Grease, which began Leicester Curve, toured the UK and is now playing in the West End. But is this the one that audiences want? Yes and no. Foster has gone back to Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s original stage musical version, rather than the John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John 50s...
Grease the Musical Tickets
Grease the Musical Information
Grease is the West End musical you need, oh yes indeed! Grease tickets are available on London Theatre now.
The Grease musical follows the Burger Palace Boys and the Pink Ladies as they navigate the trials and tribulations of their senior year at Rydell High. Transfer student Sandy Dumbrowski speaks of her whirlwind summer romance with heartthrob Danny Zuko. Little does Sandy know that Danny’s also at Rydell High. Sparks fly as they reunite, but can they find true love by the lockers?
Join the Pink Ladies at their fun-filled sleepovers, see the kids of Rydell High dance it out at the high school hop, and be a part of this love letter to high school.
Although this production boasts all the hits like “Beauty School Dropout,” “Summer Nights,” and “Greased Lightnin’”, this Grease production offers a grittier, tougher storyline, thanks to Nikolai Foster and Arlene Phillips directing and choreographing respectively. Peter Andre starred in Grease in 2022; this year it’s the turn of Louise Redknapp as Teen Angel.
Who wrote the Grease musical?
Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey wrote Grease, basing the teen musical on their high school experiences. Jacobs' alma mater, William Howard Taft School in Chicago, inspires the musical setting.

From how to get Grease tickets to when to see the show, here's your ultimate guide to Grease.
If you’re reading this, you probably know what Grease is about. One summer, boy meets girl, and then they’re suddenly at high school together. But teenage love only runs surface deep, and the romantic feeling dies out faster than one of them can say “I have homework.” Nearly 50 years on from the film’s release, millions try to recreate John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John’s iconic portrayals of Danny and Sandy, whether that be at fancy dress parties or singing Grease hits at karaoke bars. The...
Most people will associate Peter Andre with the 1990s hit, "Mysterious Girl." During his career, he's released 11 albums and competed in British reality TV shows, I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here and Strictly Come Dancing. Now Andre takes on his latest challenge — performing to thousands each night in Grease in the West End. Peter Andre’s love for Grease goes back over 40 years. “I was five years old when Grease was released in 1978,” said Andre. Even though he couldn’t watch it in the...
There are numerous romantic film couples taking over West End theatres at the moment, from Vivian Ward and Edward Lewis in Pretty Woman: The Musical to the doomed love affair between Christian and Satine in Moulin Rouge! The Musical. The Dominion Theatre is adding to that tally: Rydell High’s Danny Zuko and Sandy Dumbrowski are strutting into town as Grease hits the West End. Grease was last at London's Dominion from 1993-9. During those six years, the show featured actors such as Tamzin...
For a younger generation, the High School Musical trilogy of films are the ultimate American teen movies. They epitomise those idealistic adolescent moments: finding your love at high school, sleepovers with your besties, and forming lifelong bonds. However, the success of those 21st-century movies relies on the popularity of older teenage-led films which first captured the zeitgeist, and none managed it quite like Grease. The beloved story follows a group of Chicago high-schoolers as they...
Choreographer Arlene Phillips is no stranger to Grease. In 1993, she received an Olivier nomination for her Grease choreography. Nearly 30 years later, Phillips and Grease go together once more, as Grease heads to its London spiritual home, the Dominion, where it's currently playing for 26 weeks. But this Grease is unlike the musical film, and the show taps into the story’s hard truths. In recent years, the Grease story has faced backlash due to misogynistic tropes and a dated idea that a woman...
