Synopsis:

Grease (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Grease_%28film%29) is a 1971 musical by Jim Jacobs (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Jim_Jacobs) and Warren Casey (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Warren_Casey). The musical is named for the 1950s United States working-class youth subculture known as the Greasers.

Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Grease_%28musical%29) and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Summer_Nights_%28John_Travolta_and_Olivia_Newton-John_song%29)” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin'”, “It’s Raining on Prom Night”, “Alone at the Drive-In Movie” recalling the music of Buddy Holly (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Buddy_Holly), Little Richard (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Little_Richard) and Elvis Presley (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Elvis_Presley) that became the soundtrack of a generation
