Ray Quinn has extended his run playing the role of ‘Danny’ in Grease, and will now be starring in the show until 28 Nov 2009 (originally only due to star until 3 Oct).
It has also been announced that the show will extend to 4 Sep 2010 at the Piccadilly Theatre.
Ray Quinn made his West End debut as ‘Doody’ in Grease last year and returned to the show to play 'Danny' in May this year. He is a former X-Factor finalist and has recently been seen on the popular ITV show Dancing on Ice.
Emma Stephens currently stars in the role of 'Sandy'.
Grease, which opened at the Piccadilly Theatre on 8 Aug 2007, following previews from 25 July 2007, is written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, with additional songs B Gibb, J Farrar, L St Louis & S Simon.
The show has been seen by nearly 750,000 theatregoers at London’s Piccadilly Theatre and according to a press statement is now the longest running show in the venue’s history.
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'.
This production originally opened in the West End in 1993 (co-produced with Robert Stigwood) at the Dominion Theatre, before transferring to the Cambridge Theatre in Oct 1996 to Sep 1999. The show then continued to tour the UK and briefly returned to the Dominion Theatre for a few weeks in Oct 2001, and then had a year run at the Victoria Palace from Sep 2002. Grease finally returned to the West End in July 2007 at the Piccadilly Theatre, where it remains today.
The show has been seen by audiences totalling over 9 million people in the UK alone.
