This show was great! It really is an entirely different show than the movie. This is not a version of Grease for kids - most of the songs are different and they tackle the "issues" head on.
The theatre is in desperate need of TLC. I noticed a couple of leaks in the ceiling and the bathroom while clean just seemed dirty. You can also hear the concert going on at the club next door.

Chicago. 1959. Before two movies and three Broadway productions, summer lovin’ happened on Lake Michigan and the Pink Ladies were a group of working class outsiders living on Chicago’s Northwest Side. Including never-before-heard music, lyrics and scenes, author Jim Jacobs teams up with Artistic Director PJ Paparelli and Choreographer Jim Corti to bring to life for the first time since 1971 the original R-Rated version of the world’s most famous movie musical.
