Grease with Jamie Donnelly and Barry Pearl
I Was There Too #38 June 8, 2016
Jamie Donnelly and Barry Pearl portrayed Pink Lady Jan and T-Bird Doody respectively from the 1978 musical Grease but did you know that they’ve been performing Grease in the theatrical production prior to the film? Jamie and Barry join Matt this week to talk about auditioning for their film roles, the fly by during “Beauty School Dropout,” the intense heat as they shot the gymnasium scene, restoring the laughs from the theatrical production, and much more.
