Vanessa Hudgens & Julianne Hough Star in First 'Grease: Live' Photos!

Vanessa Hudgens and Julianne Hough sandwich in Aaron Tveit in character as Rizzo, Sandy, and Danny in these first photos from Grease: Live!

Keke Palmer, Carlos PenaVega, and Carly Rae Jepsen will also star in the live televised event, which will air on Fox on January 31, 2016.

Here’s a synopsis of the musical: The beginning of senior year means the end of Danny and Sandy’s summer romance – until Sandy unexpectedly transfers to Danny’s high school. Can Danny maintain his bad-boy image as the coolest member of the T-Birds, once he and Sandy start going together, and can Sandy remain a good girl after she joins the Pink Ladies? With their friends Rizzo and Kenickie pulling them in different directions, it’s up to Danny and Sandy to stay hopelessly devoted as they make their way from Rydell High to a new frontier.

    I love the fact that Vanessa’s name comes first, even when Julianne is playing the lead role. I think we all know that Vanessa should have played Sandy

      lol no this is the perfect cast because its also down to how they look not just acting wise. it would be a waste of time to have the cast members alter their appearance drastically to fit a role that wouldve been better suited for someone with those looks. jmo…

        Well, then you don’t get acting at all, cause that’s exactly what it is about; transforming yourself for a role. Anyways, they can’t choose roles only for the way they look, I mean look at Danny or at the guy who’s playing Kenickie (?) he looks nothing like the real one, but hey maybe they’ll ended up been great.

        • Kitkat

          i get your point, but i think theres still a limit in how much the transformation is worth (if its worth it at all) – especially if u have a perfectly capable actor/actress who also shares a physical appearance to the original character as well. it can also draw more people in.

          i dunno i just dont think acting should be all that deep. its still entertainment.

    They all look great. Love Vanessa’s look it’s perfect for Rizzo.Love the play I’m looking forward to seeing this.
