Editorial Reviews

The 1978 film has become such a fixture in Grease lore that any subsequent recording of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey's '50s tuner needs clear disclaimers, this 1994 Broadway revival cast included. What it doesn't have: "Grease," "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "Sandy," "You're the One That I Want," and John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. What it does have: "Those Magic Changes" winningly delivered by former Star Search champion Sam Harris; "Alone at the Drive-in Movie" in vocal, not instrumental form; striking choral arrangements (including the a cappella opener); Broadway's most famous fan, Rosie O'Donnell, appearing as Rizzo; and an energetic and suitably young cast led by Ricky Paull Goldin (Danny) and Susan Wood (Sandy). All in all, it's an enjoyable conception of the show as realized by Tommy Tune. Note that when Brooke Shields replaced O'Donnell in 1995, a new recording was issued, exactly the same as this one except with new tracks by Shields replacing O'Donnell's. --David Horiuchi

2.0 out of 5 stars The New Broadway Recording of Grease July 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I find this music too commercialized. The real flavor of the original Grease is lost to the bubblegum sound of the songs. I've listened quite a few times and I just can't get into it. The sound just doesn't have the edge of the Original Grease. And Rosie O'Donnell needed more time in the vocal studio working on singing vowels and supporting her breath. Buy the original!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great recording! August 16, 2000
By brian -
Format:Audio CD
This recording is much better than the movie version that everyone knows. The movie's soundtrack is good, i will admit that. But this recording sounds so much more energized for the new generation of music lovers! The cast is great and they DO NOT sound like "chippettes"! They sound like teenagers, and they should, they are supposed to be seniors in high school. This cd also has a great deal more music than the movie did. Rosie O'Donnel may not be able to sing, but she does know how to make people laugh at her jokes. She is perfectly cast as Rizzo. The supporting cast is impressive. Especially Billy Porter's(teen angel) gospel version of Beauty School Dropout. Enjoy this cd as i did! P.S.---i am proud to be the first person to review this cd with more than 2 sentences!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grease is the word...again...and again...and again. October 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Everyone loves Grease, myself included. It's practically an American tradition. However, it's also one of the most overdone musicals. This CD added so much excitement to the show, and reminded me of why I loved Grease in the first place. (Before I saw it and heard it 900 times) Rosie O'Donell doesn't have the best voice in the world, but it's certainly charming and not even slightly painful. Susan Wood has a fabulous voice as Sandy. Some standout songs are "Those Magic Changes", "Since I Don't Have You", and "Freddy My Love". Marty is played and sung by Megan Mulally who many know from Will and Grace. Get this CD: if you love Rosie O'Donell or Megan Mulally, if you want to know the real version of Grease, or if you want an upbeat fun to listen to Broadway CD. Don't get this CD: if you aren't a musical lover and just like Grease, or if you are expecting an amazingly profound story.

1.0 out of 5 stars What was that? July 25, 2006
By Cdubs
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD the other day and listened to it once. I can tell you know that I'm auctioning it off on eBay now.

This CD is not what I expected it to be. I have the original 1970s cast album which is fantastic. This CD is just annoying. Rosie's vocals drive me crazy, thank goodness they released the Brook Shields version. The new orchestrations bother me, especially the "Shakin' At the High School Hop." Not to mention the "Alma Mater" and "Alma Mater Parody" have been totally erased from the show. "We Go Together" is NOT the "Alma Mater." "Greased Lightnin' Reprise" was obviously written for Rosie, and it's annoying. One thing that surprised me was Hunter Foster. I normally LOVE him, but his "Mooning" drives me crazy. One last thing: Whose idea was it to have Ms. Lynch and Eugene sing "Born To Hand Jive"?

One of the positive things is Susan Wood as Sandy. Her Sandy is definitely what saves this show. With the addition of "Since I Don't Have You" is awesome. Samuel French has the original for theatrical companies to do, but they've included this song. Aside from Wood, Megan Mullally is an AMAZING Marty. These two save the whole friggin' show. I also love the gospel "Beauty School Dropout." Amazing.

I wish they would have kept the show as it was. It's over the top and too fancy. I recommend buying the original cast album over this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars High energy - evokes the show, which was awesome! August 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure why this album got so many poor reviews. After sitting in the fourth row for this performance when it came to Seattle, I have nothing but fond memories!

This is not the movie album, if you want the movie album, then please buy the movie album with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. But, if you're looking for a Broadway cast album and all of the energy of extremely talented young performers then purchase this one.

And don't miss the song Magic Changes - fabulous performance, will give you chills.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT Grease. January 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This terrible, badly conceived revival was an insult to the very adventurous, very raw original production of Grease, a show that paints an incredibly accurate picture of a pivotal moment in American history when rock and roll was giving birth to the Sexual Revolution. You'd never know it from this revival, but Grease is not a silly, brainless 50s parody -- it's a smart, insightful, fairly alternative piece of theatre (inspired in many ways by HAIR), and this awful 90s revival missed everyting that's special about Grease, robbing it of its muscle, its attitude, its rawness, and its thrilling, subversive, over-sexed energy. If you want to hear what Grease SHOULD sound like, if you want to hear the real sound of early rock and roll, get the original 1972 recording. That's Grease.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just wow! May 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Wow after reading the bad reviews I was really suprized! I am producing a production of Grease and this recording was just what I was looking for! It's High energy is what makes it so fun! I especially like the reworking on Beauty School Dropout, and the Finale was amazing! My only problem was with Greased Lighnin' and Born to hand Jive, they wern't as fun as the were on the original cast album. Other then that I was smiling the whole time!
