Hopelessly Devoted to Sing Along Grease

2007_11_23.grease.jpgShake off the turkey coma from yesterday, and ignore the desire to shop today; instead, save that agitated energy and the desire to be ridiculous for tonight, and the greatest thing ever: Sing Along Grease! Maah! Amazing.

The Music Box hosts sing-along versions of lots of movies, but Grease is a way better karaoke movie than, say, Wizard of Oz. The songs are easier--and there aren't any hidden numbers that no one ever remembers (like WoO's "You're out of the woods" interlude). The show starts at 7pm, and $15 gets you a goodie bag with audience-participation treats. Now if you'll excuse us, we're going to go warm up our pipes with a few lines of "Beauty School Drop Out." If you can't make it tonight, it's also playing tomorrow.
