Thank you for your creative and colorful comments. Due to copyright law, we are not allowed to change the script - we are required to present the show word-for-word as it appeared in the original Broadway production. We are also disappointed in your poor dining...More

Saw Grease and it was a wonderful show with great performances and very funny. The meal was very good and the servers awesome. We go every few years here and this was probably our best time yet.

Hi Carla- We are so glad you had a great time at Grease! Our steaks are definitely not reheated - each one is individually grilled (although we grill a LOT of steaks every night). If your steak ever tastes like it was reheated or isn't...More

We went with our adult son to see Grease and it was great! We usually go see a play every year or every other year. The food is ok that's included in fee, but your not there for the food, your there for the play.

Grease is playing on our Main Stage during June. In addition, we have a lineup of great concerts you can see by going to our website. Stevie Ray's Comedy Cabaret also performs every Friday & Saturday night.

When looking at the stage, Seats 1 & 2 are the ones closest to the stage (not on the aisle). On the left is Seat 1, on the right is Seat 2.
