The 1978 film has become such a fixture in Grease lore that any subsequent recording of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey's '50s tuner needs clear disclaimers, this 1994 Broadway revival cast included. What it doesn't have: "Grease," "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "Sandy," "You're the One That I Want," and John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. What it does have: "Those Magic Changes" winningly delivered by former Star Search champion Sam Harris; "Alone at the Drive-in Movie" in vocal, not instrumental form; striking choral arrangements (including the a cappella opener); Broadway's most famous fan, Rosie O'Donnell, appearing as Rizzo; and an energetic and suitably young cast led by Ricky Paull Goldin (Danny) and Susan Wood (Sandy). All in all, it's an enjoyable conception of the show as realized by Tommy Tune. Note that when Brooke Shields replaced O'Donnell in 1995, a new recording was issued, exactly the same as this one except with new tracks by Shields replacing O'Donnell's. --David Horiuchi
