Today BroadwayWorld is thrilled to present not one, but two world premiere exclusives from the upcoming GLEE tribute to GREASE - oh-so amusingly titled "Glease" - both the risqué and rollicking "Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee", performed by Becca Tobin (Kitty) and the gleek girls, as well as the mournful, balladic "Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee (Reprise)", passionately performed by Melissa Benoist (Marley).
It's electrifyin'! GLEE returns with GREASE fever on November 8 as the Season Three musical is finally unveiled - none other than the beloved 50s-styled rock 'n' roller GREASE! The full tribute airs November 15 and the soundtrack is out November 6. Of course, since GLEE has already prominently featured a memorable rendition of "Summer Nights", as well as showcased the seriously sensational abilities of GREASE film star Olivia Newton-John in previous seasons, we can rest assured GLEE will do GREASE proud with its forthcoming epic tribute - just as it similarly did with the spectacular homages to THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, WEST SIDE STORY and WICKED (the latter two having also had exclusive world premieres hosted in this very column, as a matter of fact; byway of "Something's Coming" courtesy of Darren Criss and "For Good" in a duet by Chris Colfer and Lea Michele, respectively).
First up, check out catty cheerleader and new GLEE S3 addition Kitty, as portrayed by Becca Tobin, positively tear up the catchy and caustic sarcasm-laced girls' slumber party-set number "Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee", a veritable list song of 50s sex symbols delivered with ample Rizzo attitude and brio. Enjoy!
Also, be sure to check out today's other GLEE world premiere exclusive, "Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee (Reprise)", performed by Melissa Benoist.
