Remember Taylor Hicks? He was the 'American Idol' season five winner – the one after Carrie Underwood and before Jordan Sparks. Still nothing? He had the ''soul patrol'' following and the salt 'n' pepper hair – he looks a bit like a young Jay Leno? Come on, we know you remember him now. Get reacquainted with Mr. Hicks this January when he appears as ''Teen Angel'' in Broadway in Chicago's 'Grease.' Tickets are now on sale for the Jan. 6-18 engagement at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University. Allie Schulz, a contestant on NBC's ''Grease: You're the One That I Want,'' stars as ''Rizzo.''
This new production of 'Grease,' which opened on Broadway in August 2007, was born out of NBC's TV series, ''Grease: You're The One That I Want.'' The weekly talent competition attracted 90 million viewers who voted for their favorite contestants to play the lead roles of Sandy and Danny on Broadway.
Tickets range in price from $26-85 and are available at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University box office (50 E. Congress Pkwy.); all Broadway In Chicago Box Offices (24 W. Randolph St., 151 W. Randolph St., and 18 W. Monroe St.); the Broadway In Chicago Ticket Line at (312) 902-1400; and all Ticketmaster retail locations.
