A ﬁrm favorite on Broadway, the West End and the silver screen, this all new production of Grease, directed by Curve Artistic Director Nikolai Foster and produced by Curve, one of the UK’s leading producing theaters, in partnership with 61X DEGREES Entertainment, features a phenomenal score including Summer Nights, Grease Lightnin’, Hopelessly Devoted to You and You’re the One That I Want.
Grease is an electrifying celebration of the birth of cool and teenage culture and tells the story of leather-clad greaser Danny and girl-next-door Sandy who, after a whirlwind summer romance are unexpectedly reunited when she transfers to Rydell High for senior year. But can they survive the trials and tribulations of teenage life and ﬁnd true love once more?
Curve Chief Executive Chris Staﬀord and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster said in a joint statement, “We are proud to bring our brand new production of Grease to Dubai. Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s musical provides a gripping snapshot of a country on the cusp of social change, all set to one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll scores ever written. Seen by nearly 50,000 people during it’s sold out run in Leicester, we couldn’t be more thrilled our super-cool greasers will continue to entertain audiences in Dubai.”
Karim Yafaoui, Managing Director, 6IX DEGREES ENTERTAINMENT

We are thrilled to be working closely with Curve to host this production at the Dubai World Trade Centre, and to bring this hit musical to the region for the ﬁrst time. DWTC’s central location, and its state of the art venue, with ﬂexible halls and capabilities make it the ideal location for this event.”
