“The Diary Of A Movie Greaser” is a straightforward, non-embellished look back in time, a veritable trip down memory lane aided only by a nearly 40 year old dog-eared daily diary. This nostalgic remembrance of the author’s break in Hollywood as an actor/singer/dancer under contract for the entire production schedule for Paramount’s musical movie Grease, is peppered with personal anecdotes, behind-the-scenes stories, and fond memories of celebrities no longer with us. You’ll be right there with him at his “bare-all” audition in New York, and his settling in to the California lifestyle. Come to rehearsals before the cameras rolled to the actual shooting of iconic Grease musical numbers. Along the way, read Sean’s production notes that give a seldom-seen view of what it’s like making movie history. So, turn back the clock to 1977 and come along and live it with Sean Moran as he remembers Grease from start to finish.
