Grease 2

Recorded in the ‘70s and set in the ‘50s, this bubble gum pink confection stars pop singer Olivia Newton-John as straight laced Sandy and TV-turned-movie star John Travolta as bad boy Danny, two love birds who meet at the beach over summer vacation. The romance continues when Sandy surprisingly transfers to the same school as Danny for their senior year. Their rocky road to love and self-discovery is set to the backdrop of infectious musical numbers executed by both stars in their primes and with a strong supporting cast anchored by Sandy’s foil, Rizzo, played by Stockard Channing. At best, it’s a coming of age story of two people discovering who they really are. At worst, it’s the story of Sandy succumbing to peer pressure and changing who she is in order to please her partner.
