Who would be your dream cast of GREASE if it went live on the air?
After the televised version of The Sound of Music live featuring Carrie Underwood and True Blood’s Stephen Moyer drew 18 million viewers and prompted NBC to develop more classic musicals for television, this idea seems logical.
The musical debuted on Broadway in 1972 and was revived in 2009. It became an iconic film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in 1978.
But casting is everything. After the hubbub caused by the lack of appreciation for Underwood’s acting from the entertainment community, I urge the directors and producers of Grease: Live to choose wisely about the actors they get to play the two iconic roles of Sandy and Danny.
