Ramma lamma lamma and boogedy boogedy boogedy

by Alicia Anstead

When senior Mia Walker was working on "The History Boys" last year, she kept thinking the characters should break into song. That's when she decided to direct "Grease," which opens Dec. 4 and runs through Dec 12 in the Ex. In the video below, Walker talks about how a show about the 1950s still has chops today, and how she prepared actors with YouTube videos of Elvis, Marilyn and "traces of the '50s." Tickets are free and can be reserved by emailing greasetix@gmail.com. More info here. BONUS LINK: Here's Elvis doing "Jail House Rock." [http://www.youtube.com/v/QAFWwNQaTrM&hl=en_US&fs=1&]
