“Grease Is the Word” is a modern take on the iconic song “Grease,” which was written by Barry Gibb and performed by Frankie Valli and served as the opening track of the 1978 classic musical film.
The 31-song soundtrack compiles 28 previously released tracks from the series, which have released weekly since the premiere on April 6. Several of them have resonated with fans including the internet favorite “Crushing Me,” sung by Tricia Fukuhara and Ari Notartomaso, which nails the stomach-flip feeling of a new crush, and the punchy ballad full of powerful vocal runs by Marisa Davila on “I Want More.”
The song “Think Pink” – performed by the cast – debuts in the final episode and sonically honors the closing song of the 1978 classic musical film. Each song heard in the series has been accompanied by a choreographed dance number, led by choreographer Jamal Sims.
GREASE: RISE OF THE PINK LADIES stars Marisa Davila as Jane, Cheyenne Isabel Wells as Olivia, Ari Notartomaso as Cynthia, Tricia Fukuhara as Nancy, Shanel Bailey as Hazel, Madison Thompson as Susan, Johnathan Nieves as Richie, Jason Schmidt as Buddy, Maxwell Whittington-Cooper as Wally and Jackie Hoffman as Asst. Principal McGee.
The musical series takes place four years before the original “Grease.” In 1954, before rock ‘n’ roll ruled, before the T-Birds were the coolest in the school, four fed-up outcasts dare to have fun on their own terms, sparking a moral panic that will change Rydell High forever.
