Grease Returns to Toronto! #greasetoronto

by - Thursday, May 31, 2018


Grease in Toronto is back for a limited 6-week summer engagement; my mom and I had the chance to take in the ever popular show this week at the beautiful Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto.

No matter how many times I've seen Grease, on stage or on screen, one thing's for sure -- it never gets old. It's one of those shows you can see over and over, and in my case, over again.


The new(er) Grease in Toronto brings the audience right into Rydell High, with a fully interactive lobby and Diner, carnival games and stage set up. Stock up on Grease merch or have a cocktail before showtime and during intermission.




You can't ignore the singing in this performance -- it's simply outstanding. Every single cast member has a knockout voice that will launch you back into your seats. Total powerhouses. And also really, really cool? The majority of the cast are not only Canadian but graduates of Sheridan College's Musical Theatre Program. Props to Randolph, Ryerson and other local schools, too. Worth noting -- simple, yet effective choreography where the audience can participate (hand jive anyone?!), and seamless set designs that take you from the diner to the drive-in, classroom, Marty's house and the infamous school dance.

The new Grease in Toronto features some returning cast (Janel Parrish as Sandy), and fabulous new additions, like Matthew Helfer as Danny (who can pass as a John Travolta/James Marsden look alike!). It's always fabulous to see my childhood neighbour, Michael De Rose, lighting up the stage as Teen Angel, a role he'll be sharing in the coming weeks. See special cameo appearances by DWTS' Mark Ballas (June 7-10), George Canyon (June 12-17), Logan Henderson (June 23-29) and Drake Bell (July 3-8).
