The one-off musical TV special “Grease: Live” is set to premiere tonight on FOX, but El Nino might just spoil the party as rain has been the forecast for Sunday.
“Grease: Live” director Thomas Kail declares that the production is ready for it. “We definitely can’t move any of our outdoor scenes inside so we’ll have to use a tent or something — or people are going to get a little wet,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
Fox is pouring and pulling a different TV musical live as “Grease: Live!” will be shot in three different lots, one of them is an outdoor set at the Warner Bros. studios, which will be used for the final carnival scene, per Extra. The report stated that the cast will be bringing colorful umbrellas on scene, and they have done rehearsals in wet surfaces, just in case the downpour is happening.
The musical is also mounting a first, as it will have a live studio audience in each of the sound stages. Previous live musicals like “The Wiz,” “The Sound of Music,” and “Peter Pan,” which were all aired on NBC, didn’t have live audience watching.
“Grease: Live” stars Aaron Tveit, Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens, Keke Palmer, Carly Rae Jepsen, Carlos Penavega, Jessie J and Mario Lopez. It will air tonight, Jan. 31, at 7:00 p.m. on FOX.
