"Grease" - Brooks Atkinson Theatre

Our playbills of "Grease", performed at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway, are dated July 2007 and July 2008. The show didn't officially open until August 19, 2007, showing that the early program, which has a picture of Sandy and Danny on the cover, is from the preview performances before opening. It should also be noted that the actors who play Danny (Max Crumm) and Sandy (Laura Osnes) were hired through a televised reality television audition process.
