“GREASE IS THE WORD”

Written on: 09/04/2013 by KieranHay (1 review written)

I went to see Grease is the Word Musical at Birmingham Alexandra with my family on 31st of December 2011. The show involved many different performances of songs such as ‘The One That You Want’, ‘Born To Hand Jive’ while still telling a story of a romance. The three main art forms incorporated into the show were acting, singing and dancing. The cast was very good performing to their best, however, sometimes I couldn’t understand Danny Bayne as his American accent was quite over the… Read Full Review

“It's electrifying!”

Written on: 29/12/2012

Wow! What an AMAZING show! I have been to many shows in my time and this was just out of this world! There was so much energy present on stage that continued throughout the whole performance! The costumes were great and the actors where phenomenal! Amazing voices to be heard! I was singing along all the way though! We paid £35 each for out tickets and felt there was great value for money! It was great for anybody of all ages and I would defiantly recommend this production to anyone!… Read Full Review

“Grease is such a great performance for everybody”

Written on: 22/11/2011 by SaviArt (1 review written)

Saw Grease the musical and was very satisfied for spent time. It's very good because of the old songs like \"tell me more\" and many others. It reminds of early 70's wich was interesting to view. I recommend it to everyone who is willing to se it. It's very simple but attractive with great dancing scenes!… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2011

Having been a 'Grease' fan since I was little ! was so looking forward to seeing the show with my little girl. But what a disappointment! Danny was awful, too old, no voice and a creepy stage presence, thought I was watching a sad Elvis wannabe! The show had no wow factor, and I agree with the other comments made here, waiting for sexy Sandy to appear was a big disappointment everyone looked so serious in the audience and the little girls in our party just seemed bored! Don't waste your… Read Full Review

Went to see Grease last night and was very disappointed.The understudy that played Danny was very poor he tried to act as thoe he was Elvis and was far to old looking for Danny!Sandy was ok and some of the dancing was excellent but as the show was really about Danny and Sandy and having such a poor Danny it really spoilt it for me.Some of the songs didnt even sound like they were the same tune as the musicial.The Singer who sang Grease Lightening was really terrible couldnt sing at all and this… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/01/2011

Expected alot more from the show. There were about 2 parts that were fantastic but the script and acting was poor. The actors playing the T Birds and Jan and Frenchie were really good! But the actress playing Sandy was a big fat disappointment...her voice wasnt much and when she came out as 'sexy Sandy' she looked like a 12 year old playing dress up. She is definitely the wrong choice for the role. Some of the accents were questionable too… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2011

Absolutly FANTASTIC! For all ages! The oldest in our party was 72 and the youngest 14, but there were youngs kids there too! I'm not a fan of musicals or so I thought. The time wizzed by from start to finish kept everyone enthrilled! Got very good price for our tickets on an internet site. Real feel good stuff! The only problem was people behind me kept chatting-I think one of them couldn't speek English and the others were filling them in. So did have to ask them to stop talking. Normally i'd… Read Full Review

“Hi all, ”

Written on: 21/10/2010

Hi all,

I'm only asking this due to the fact that last night I went to see Grease the musical at the Piccadilly theatre in London, and I wasn't impressed with the show one bit! I was looking forward to seeing this show, as we are doing it at our school in February and went to see it to get ideas. I will name you a few things which I picked out:

1. We had a load of understudies and the singing was awful, not to mention some of the dancers were out of time from each other. This leads me on the… Read Full Review

Absolutly amazing, Ray Quinn playing Danny and his real life girlfriend playing Sandy. Really good performing with jumps and lifts and they actors got into their rolls really well. Would definatly reccomend to a friend the best show I have ever seen! Go and watch it its definatly worth it!! I really liked the acting and how they sang the songs and changed it slightly. Go and watch it!!! :)… Read Full Review

What a pile of poo!! It was always going to be a tough job to try and compete with the movie but come on surely some clever dicks out there could do a better job than that!!! Migth one suggest a 'Sandy' that has abit more movement in the hips. Spoon and wooden sprung to mind!! Quite disappointing and I will not be recommending this to anyone… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/04/2010

I was very disappointed in the Grease musical. Clearly they have never seen the movie. Some parts were made up, as I remember it there was never a scene in marty's basement and Danny sings grease lightning no Connicki. It was such a disappointment. The acting was terribly saddening as well as the fact that Taylor Hicks didn't even show up. I just couldn't wait for the whole thing to be over. The musical didn't even follow the correct order of the plot or places. Not much more than a high school… Read Full Review

Parts of the show were brilliant, music was brilliant, but parts were slow and boring.

The Danny part by Noel whatever his name is was absolute rubbish - he cannot act or dance, this part should have been taken by one of the T Bird actors - they were all fantastic… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/08/2008 by duckerdog22 (1 review written)

I watched Grease on the reality show like a lot of broadway fans do and I personally wanted Derek Keeling to win but I thought Max would do ok. I also rooted for Laura from the begining and was very happy when see won. So I got my tickets and was very excited to see it. Well as I watched the first act I wasnt sure how to judge it but as I watched it there were a lot of positives and a lot of negatives and as I watched the second act I still wasnt sure how to judge it… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/07/2008 by hsaunders33 (1 review written)

I went to see Grease after reading a lot of bad press on the internet about it and i don't understand who the people are that write that rubbish. Grease isn't supposed to be serious it is meant to be fun and cheery and i believe they really pulled it off. Me and my bf had an amazing night, none stop smiles and laughter. It was the best show I've seen in a long time! And what a lovely suprise to find Ray Quin amongst the cast, he was great… Read Full Review

Went to see Grease at the Picadilly Theatre & got told off for singing and was told it was not a karaoke bar. They sold us a fluffy pink wand to wave around for £5 and then told not to wave it. What is the point of going to see a musical if you cant have a singalong?… Read Full Review

Westend musicals are not Kareoke bars, if you wanted to have a sing-a-long you should have gone to one. Why ruin the rest of the audiences enjoyment of the trained professionals performances when they have payed to see just that - trained professionals.
<br/>
<br/>Call it snobbish or not, but there is an etiquette at the theatre. There are shows that are advertised as sing-a-longs, this west end musical is not one of them so the staff certainly were not in the wrong to tell you to stop. Think how off putting it would be also for the people performing on stage, it is rude and disrespectful to the actors, you wouldnt shout out their lines as they said them if you knew them.
