Grease The Musical, Dominion Theatre

Grease to return to the Dominion Theatre in London in 2023

The smash-hit production of musical Grease is coming back to the West End!

The show will follow its successful run earlier this year at the Dominion Theatre with a further West End run in 2023.

Grease will play the Dominion Theatre from 2 June to 28 October 2023. Tickets for Grease are now on sale.

Directed by Curve Leicester Artistic Director Nikolai Foster and featuring choreography by Dame Arlene Phillips, casting for the show will be announced soon.

Grease is considered one of the all-time favourite musicals, and the 1978 film adaptation starring John Travolta and the late Olivia Newton-John is the fourth highest-grossing live action movie musical of all time. This revival is dedicated to the memory of Olivia Newton-John, who died in August.

The musical is packed full of great songs including Summer NightsGreased Lightnin’Hopelessly Devoted To You and You’re The One That I Want.

This production of the show ran at the Dominion Theatre earlier this year, from 3 May to 29 October 2022, starring Peter Andre as Vince Fontaine and  Jason Donovan as Teen Angel at certain performances, plus Dan Partridge (Hairspray, Mamma Mia!) as Danny and Olivia Moore (Waitress, Heathers) as Sandy.

Previous productions in the Wes End include the 1993 London revival starring Neighbours’ Craig McLachlan as Danny and EastEnders’ Shane Ritchie as Kenickie, also at the Dominion Theatre, and then the Cambridge Theatre. A revival of this production returned to the Piccadilly Theatre in London in 2007.

Grease originally opened in Chicago in 1971, followed by a move to Broadway in 1972, where it received seven Tony Award nominations, including one for Best Musical. During the show’s eight-year run at the time, little known actors including Peter Gallagher, Patrick Swayze and John Travolta all appeared in the production, with Richard Gere understudying many roles before going on to star as Danny Zuko in the 1973 London premiere.

This production of Grease is designed by Colin Richmond, with orchestrations and musical supervision by Sarah Travis, lighting design by Ben Cracknell, sound design by Tom Marshall and Richard Brooker and casting by David Grindrod CDG.
