Grease Live Summer Nights

Grease: Live Kicks Off With 'Summer Nights' — Grade the First Big Number

As the lyrics to “Summer Nights” suggest, the first big group number from Grease: Live felt like it happened so fast — and, yes, we had us a blast.

Stars Aaron Tveit and Julianne Hough, backed by their inquisitive castmates, crooned Danny and Sandy’s classic tale of awkward romance: Boy meets girl on vacation, girl ends up going to the same school, boy freaks out. (For the record, this whole ‘Surprise! We go to the same school!’ concept would never happen in our post-Facebook society.)

Aside from Jessie J’s opening performance of “Grease Is the Word,” this was the audience’s first real chance to experience Tveit, Hough and the rest of the cast — and we need to get your thoughts. (Your honest thoughts.)
