It amazes me that there still are people in this world who haven’t discovered GREASE! The stage version of the beloved ’50s-set Musical just opened in Toronto officially at Winter Garden Theatre, running through to mid-December. The Production directed by Broadway Choreographer and Director Josh Prince, stars Pretty Little Liars’ Janel Parrish in the lead role of Sandy. Playing Danny is fresh-faced Dylan S. Wallach,while the important role of Rizzo is filled by Katie Findlay, a familiar face whom you may remember from How to Get Away with Murder and The Carrie Diaries. Kenickie is played by Matt Magnusson.
We had the joy of meeting Parrish, Findlay and Magusson who have settled nicely into the City for the past bit. Parrish‘s parents came out to support her at today’s matinee and even brought her flowers! Aww! 💐
UPDATE: We had the absolute pleasure witnessing GREASE TORONTO live this past weekend and we had so much fun! See our Review below and hover your cursor left and right to navigate some more Cast Snaps:
You know her from Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, The Vampire Diaries, Save the Last Dance, Pretty Little Liars and Teen Wolf, among many other credits. One of the most hardest-working Actresses in Hollywood is Bianca Lawson, who now in Toronto filming TV Series Rogue.
We spotted the youthful Star on a grocery run earlier today, who despite wearing little makeup, was nice enough to stop for a Snap.
Rogue centers on female Police Officer-turned-FBI Handler named Grace Travis (Thandie Newton) who is forced to go undercover to investigate the murder of another female Operative. She meets Ethan (Cole Hauser) whom she is charmed by, but well could be resposible for that Operative’s disappearance/murder.
More details on Rogue which in its second Season is available on-demand May 26, 2015 here.
