Get out your poodle skirts and your black tee-shirts, girls and boys: Grease hit town last night and what a joyful, joyous romp this production is, easily the best ever seen on these shores. Buckets of praise must go to a great cast who perform with so much energy, director David Gilmore who has brought a fresh take to the show, Arlene Phillips’ simple yet stylish and authentic choreography, and a brilliant set, sound and lighting.
