Grease Reviews are Suck

This is not the one that I want!

Reviews for the Broadway revival of Grease are sucking! NBC’s reality TV series You’re the One That I Want chose Max Crumm and Laura Osnes to play the lead roles.

The Hollywood Reporter: “Tackily produced and utterly lacking the sort of fun comic spark that the original production and certainly the movie possessed (though not the most recent Broadway revival in 1994), this is a Grease that only will be appreciated by young TV viewers who don’t know any better.”

Variety: “The most dismal thing about this Grease is that aside from the two discoveries plucked from a mediocre TV talent pool and thrust into this sorry walk-through, no-one appears to be trying very hard. Like the drag-queeny wig slapped on Sandy when she finally conforms to the cool-kid ethos by unleashing the bad-girl within to win Danny, it all seems somewhat counterfeit.”

The TV show may have bombed but the strong ticket sales ($14 million box-office advance) may mean Grease could be around longer than expected. Apparently Broadway and reality TV go together like rama lama lama ka dinga de dinga dong!
