Paramount begins Broadway series with ‘Grease’
It makes sense that the Paramount Theatre in Aurora would choose to stage the musical “Grease.”
“Grease,” which will be at the Paramount through Oct. 7, has deep roots in the area.
Although “Grease” is most associated with the popular 1978 movie of the same name, the musical premiered in 1971 at the Kingston Mines Theatre in Chicago. The musical itself is set in the 1950s on Chicago’s Northwest side.
Any theater company willing to take on “Grease” should know the baggage the musical carries, namely that the movie became so popular, you almost can’t imagine anybody else playing the characters in the musical.
