Previewed 15 April 2014, Opened 16 April 2014, Closed 19 April 2014 at the Duchess Theatre in London
The return of the cult musical Cool Rider in London for seven concert performances only this April 2014.
The 1982 film Grease 2 told the heady and daring love story of two unlikely lovers and their road to romance from bowling alley to burger joint, sing-a-long-a-sex education class to talent show, and long (and beautifully lit) romantic motorcycle rides to a slightly incongruous luau ending. Now, this concert of the songs from the much loved and much maligned cult musical film comes to the London West End stage for only week only. Featuring the hit songs Who's That Guy?, Score Tonight, Cool Rider, Reproduction, Girl for all Seasons and Rock-a-Hula Luau (Summer Is Coming).
Celebrating the infamous styles, moves and wheels of the greatest high school of all time, Cool Rider pays homage to the films sheer brilliance (and shortcomings) with many surprises along the way. This production returns to London's West End following two sell-out performances at the Lyric Theatre in January 2014.
The cast features Ashleigh Gray as 'Stephanie' and Aaron Sidwell as 'Michael' who are both reprising their roles from the January concerts. It is directed by Guy Unsworth with choreography by Matt Krzan, designs by Chris Wilmer and lighting by Charlie Morgan Jones.
Cool Rider in London at the Duchess Theatre previewed from 15 April 2014, opened on 16 April 2014 and closed on 19 April 2014.
