ARTNEWSPRESS: I got chills and they’re multiplying! Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta reunited Friday dressed as their characters Sandy and Danny from their classic, 1978 musical “Grease.”
Newton-John shared a behind-the-scenes photo to her Instagram of the iconic, on-screen lovebirds both in costume as they attended a Meet n’ “Grease” sing-along event at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Friday.
“First time in costume since we made the movie! So excited,” Newton-John said on Instagram, where she can be seen in a Sandy-like yellow cardigan and matching skirt alongside Travolta in all black with a leather jacket, the favorite duds of Danny Zuko himself. She later ditched her good girl outfit and dressed up to match Travolta with her own leather jacket, just as it happens at the end of the film.
Newton-John recently auctioned off the leather jacket she actually wore in the film. It brought in a hefty $243,000, which went to her charity, the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Center.
According to a recap of the event from People, Newton-John also joined Travolta on-stage at the event for a Q&A following the movie. The two are scheduled to appear at other “Grease” events in Tampa on Dec. 14 and then in Jacksonville on Dec. 15.
The 1978 musical “Grease” starring Travolta and Newton-John made $396 million worldwide and is one of the highest-grossing movie musicals of all time. The movie is set for a musical spinoff series on HBO Max when the new streaming service launches next year.
