More Reality Theater ... Grease

In the last few weeks I mentioned the BBC running a Reality TV show to select a Maria for an upcoming production of The Sound of Music in London.

Well now it looks like they'll be doing the same thing for an upcoming Broadway Revival of Grease. I'll reserve judgment until I see the result ....

From BBC:

"You're the One That We Want will see members of the public competing for the lead parts of Danny and Sandy.

The panel of judges giving their verdicts includes Jim Jacobs, the creator of Grease - although a public vote will eventually decide the winner.

The revival of the musical will hit Broadway theatres in June 2007. "

Oh, can I also add (for the record) that "You're the one that I want" is not a song in the original show? It was made popular by the movie.
