A bunch of us went to the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center to watch Grease, a musical and movie that I wasn’t familiar with.  All I remembered was that Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta was in the movie and there were tight leather pants and dancing in it.  And it was during the 60’s.  The movie never interested me, so I never went to watch the musical.  E had tickets fro $21 and I thought, why not?  It’s something to do and it was her birthday.

After watching it, I still don’t get the fascination.  Why is Sandra more interesting after she wears the leather pants?  I mean Danny seemed to like her just fine in the summer.  I don’t see why he’s so much more interested after she’s become a little slutty.  I think Danny should be the one that changes.  He should realize that it doesn’t matter what his friends think.  He should like her for who she is.  But what do I know?  The people in the packed theatre LOVED it.  Just absolutely screamed every time the song was over.

The only song that I liked was “Hopelessly Devoted To You”, but I think it’s because I recognized it from Pushing Daisies and Kristin Chenoweth was singing it.  Love Kristin Chenoweth.

Also, Taylor Hicks is touring with the Grease cast.  I didn’t know who he was.  I didn’t even know if Taylor was a girl or a guy.  I mean, Taylor Swift is a girl, after all.  But I soon found out who he was after we arrived at Bob Carr.  His photo was everywhere and it was somewhat hard to miss.

He played the Teen Angel that popped out of a giant ice cream cone.  He hammed it up for a good five minutes before he popped back in to the ice cream.  He sang “Beauty School Dropout”.  At the end of the show, he came out and sang another song from his album and then he trotted himself out to whore himself, I mean to sell albums and sign them.

I won’t be going to Grease if I had the chance again.  We have tickets to Cats, which I haven’t seen either.  Only song I know from that is Memories.  Chris has seen it, though, but he wont’ be going.  Hell, the tickets are $21.  Why not?  We’ve also got Phantom of the Opera in the lineup.  Unfortunately, Wicked isn’t playing in Orlando this year.  They’ll be in Tampa.  I have to decide if I want to go all the way out there to watch it.  I mean, it’s Tampa.  There’s nothing to do there.  Anyway, that’s it for today.
