Greasemaniacs by mbrutus


These are four of the approximately twenty thousand fans who gathered at the Hollywood Bowl for the 40th Anniversary Sing Along Screening of the movie Grease. And yes, on this evening Grease was definitely The Word. No that is not me under the pink wig. But it is another guy who was inspired to dress up as Frenchy. Unfortunately, because they seem like quite a fun group, all four of these Greasemaniacs are strangers to me. But there were thousands of other fans who arrived in costume. Didi Conn, the original Frenchy who hosted the evening, did not appear in costume. But she did a wonderful job revving up the crowd, which need very little revving up, if truth be told. She shared many inside anecdotes and introduced the band ShaNaNa, who played the band in the movie. They played a wonderful pre-sunset concert. As for me, I enjoyed the evening thoroughly, despite not having seen the film in approximately forty years. Though I could probably wait another forty for my next screening, by which time I likely wouldn't be able to recognize either John Travolta or Olivia Newton John, but would likely still enjoy the music of ShaNaNa.
There’s not too many things more fun for adults than dressing up for a theme party. These folks are beyond awesome! ShaNaNa. Oh my, too cool for school.

Looks like an enthusiastic crowd! I have a pink/black poodle skirt costume with a scottie dog on it instead of a poodle...I could have worn that. :). I would fit right in. :)
