Speaking of “Grease Live”, they talked on it at the Fox Winter Press tour yesterday. Note how there is going to be two original members from the first movie in it. Here is more from E Online. Be sure to read the link for the full article.

The cast of Fox’s upcoming musical production, including Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens and Aaron Tveit, is still intensely rehearsing for the Jan. 31 event, but they gathered at the Television Critics Association winter press tour to share a few things we can expect from their show.

The first bit of news? That it’ll include two cast members from the movie. Revealed director Thomas Kail, “Didi Conn (Frenchy) and Barry Pearl (Doody) are in our production! Didi is playing Vi who is the waitress who has a little scene with Frenchy. We do have a moment where we have the generations stare at each other…it was incredibly moving for all of us.”

Here’s what else we learned about the upcoming TV event:

It’s the Best of Both Worlds: “We’re doing the best version of Grease,” revealed executive producer Marc Platt, which will include songs and scenes from both the film and he original stage production. That will include songs from the musical, “‘Those Magic Changes’ and ‘Freddie My Love,’ which Keke Palmer will sing. [We’re] combining them into an experience that works for live television.”

I was also freaking when I saw that Eve Plumb of The Partridge Family is also going to be in it. It’s going to be cool to see her again. I always thought it would be cool to see her do Dancing With The Stars.

Variety also has a great feature up on the show with some quotes from Julianne and the cast.

Director Thomas Kail, fresh from Broadway’s smash hit “Hamilton,” is promising a re-imaging of musical and dance numbers for a new generation. That includes a new song for Frenchy, “All I Need Is an Angel,” penned by “If/Then” and “Next to Normal” duo of Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey.

The telecast will use a split screen, and cameras will capture behind the scenes activity that will be sprinkled into the broadcast. Bleachers for live audiences will be erected in several locations on the lot. “We’ll be able to show it in the vernacular of the way television is happening now,” Platt said.

John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John starred in the hit 1978 film rendition of the musical. Those two are not likely to show up in the live staging but two others from the film Didi Conn (who played Frenchy) and Barry Pearl (Doody) will get cameos, Platt said. Travolta and Newton-John have expressed their support for the project. “I know they’ll be watching on the evening of” the production, Platt said.

Hough said she was moved by spending time recently with Newton-John. “I hope to make her proud,” Hough said.

Kail and other cast members emphasized that “Grease” was one of the first musical theater productions they were exposed to, and one of the properties that sparked their desire to work on the stage. Kail said it’s gratifying for them to be able to tackle the production in a venue that has the potential to be seen by many millions of people, and possibly ignite that same interest in a kid or two.

“Grease Live” is also going to have a brand new song sung by Carly Rae Jepson. Read more at Entertainment Weekly.
