Jimmy Osmond Guest Stars As 'Teen Angel' In Grease At The Piccadilly Theatre

Wed, 7th Jan 09
Making his West End debut, Jimmy Osmond will play ‘Teen Angel’ for a limited season from 19 January to 28 February at The Piccadilly Theatre.

Having won British audience’s hearts all over again when he appeared in the popular ITV show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Jimmy Osmond recently completed a hugely successful tour of Britain with his family.

Looking forward to his first West End role, Jimmy Osmond says: “It has been a lifelong dream of mine to play in the West End and what better show than Grease. It is fast, fun, energetic and full of talent and I am just thrilled to be playing Teen Angel”.

Producer David Ian says: “Jimmy Osmond is truly a worldwide star and to have him starring in Grease, the UK's Number 1 musical, is as exciting as it gets for London's Theatre fans”.

Since breaking out on Broadway in 1972, Grease’s place has been firmly established in the cultural Hall of Fame, having seduced the hearts of millions with its back-to-back sizzling tunes. The show features all the unforgettable songs from the hit film including ‘You’re The One That I Want’, ‘Sandy’, ‘Grease Is The Word’, ‘Hopelessly Devoted’, ‘Summer Nights’ and many more.

Voted the “No 1 Greatest Musical”*, Grease has proved that a musical love story, bursting with denim, cheerleaders, slick hairstyles and raging teenage hormones is timeless and universal.

This production originally opened in the West End in 1993 (co-produced with Robert Stigwood) where it enjoyed a fantastic run of 6 years. The last international tour of Grease was a phenomenal success, playing to sell-out audiences and smashing records at many venues. Since 1993, it has been seen by over 9 million people and has grossed over £175 million in the UK alone.

Written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, directed by David Gilmore (Daisy Pulls It Off, Happy Days, Song & Dance, Footloose) and choreographed by Arlene Phillips (The Sound of Music, Starlight Express, Saturday Night Fever & BBC TV’s “Strictly Come Dancing”), Grease is produced in the West End by Paul Nicholas and David Ian, by arrangement with Robert Stigwood.
