Grease : a new 50's rock 'n roll musical by Warren Casey( Book )

16 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Grease is the passionate story of Danny Zuko, king of the Burger Palace Boys, and Sandy Dumbrowski, the neighborhood sweetheart in the pink poodle skirt, a romance set against a mind-bending background of shu-bop -shu-bop and a-ram-a-lam-a ding dong. It's a mad musical romp, a devastating mock James Dean movie, and a triumph of anthropological re-creation all in one. The critics love it, Broadway spectators stomp their feet and double up with laughter, and so will you. It' a "straightforward, unsentimental look at everything that happened to young people in the Fifties," as The Wall Street Journal put it. Or to quote John Lahr: "Wop-bop-alu-mop-ba-lop-bam-boom! A show with enough energy and fun for any big popper!" " -- From book jacket
