Grease cast changes from 11 May 2009

New cast in Grease, at the Piccadilly Theatre from 11 May 2009. Joining previously mentioned Ray Quinn (Danny to 3 Oct ), is Emma Stephens (Sandy), Stuart Ramsay (Kenickie), Natalie Langston (Rizzo), Michael Melmoe (Roger), Laura Wilson (Jan), Benjamin Ibbott (Doody), Faye Brookes (Frenchy), Bennett Andrews (Sonny), Robyn Mellor (Marty), Jamie Tyler (Eugene), Lizzi Franklin (Patty), Jason Capewell (Vince/Teen Angel), Marie Daly (Miss Lynch) , Kristina Macmillan (Cha Cha).

Grease opened at the Piccadilly Theatre on 8 Aug 2007, following previews from 25 July, to mostly poor notices from the popular press: THE EVENING STANDARD says, "How under-sexed, how under-done and under par." THE TIMES says, "Lacklustre production." THE INDEPENDENT says, "Completely unaffecting production...a jukebox masquerading as a musical."

Grease is written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, with additional songs B Gibb, J Farrar, L St Louis & S Simon.

It is directed by David Gilmore, choreography by Arlene Phillips, and produced by Paul Nicholas and David Ian by arrangement with Robert Stigwood.

Songs from the show include 'Grease (Is The Word)'; 'You're The One That I Want'; 'Greased Lightning'; 'Hopelessly Devoted To You' and 'Sandy'.
