The producers of a Broadway GREASE revival are set to use reality TV to find their stars. US TV talent contest YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I WANT will pit wannabe thespians against one other - and the winners will land leading roles in the rock 'n' roll musical. The NBC show will be produced by the brains behind a similar British show, HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE MARIA? which is aimed at finding the star of a The Sound Of Music revival on London's West End. The winners of You're The One That I Want will play DANNY ZUKO and SANDY DUMBROWSKI onstage. Those roles were played by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in the cult 1978 Grease movie musical.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
