What the critics had to say...

NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "How under-sexed, how under-done and under par I found director David Gilmore's attempt to put the brilliantine back into Grease!..Is it not high time producers found real stars for musicals again?"

MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Danny Bayne as the hero displays bags of energy and has one good moment when he puffs on a last fag before setting off on a track-race, but he doesn't possess the mocking insolence of John Travolta in the movie. As for Susan McFadden, she has all of Sandy's wholesomeness and sings prettily, but has a painfully limited range of physical expression."

SARAH CROMPTON for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Bayne...dances well enough, but he always appears to be copying someone else's moves - whenever he is asked to be still, or to think, he looks blank..."McFadden has a sweet smile and a strong voice. Unfortunately she belts out every ballad as if it were karaoke night; there's no finesse or feeling."

SAM MARLOWE for THE TIMES says, "Lacklustre production...They all flounce and pose their way through Arlene Phillips’s uninspired and, on the whole, undemanding choreography."

PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "With its vestigial, embarrassing plot, Grease comes over, in this high-energy, high-decibel but completely unaffecting production, as a jukebox masquerading as a musical."
