Check additional details via the Deadline article and the Hollywood Reporter video featured below. Think Pink indeed!
The Pink Ladies
The Pink Ladies were a girl group at Rydell High School in both Grease and Grease 2. Members include Betty ‘Rizzo’ (Stockard Channing), Jan (Jamie Donnelly) Marty (Dinah Manoff), Frenchy (Didi Conn), and later Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John). In Grease 2, members included Stephanie Zinone (Michelle Pfeiffer), Paulette Rebchuck (Lorna Luft), Rhonda Ritter (Alison Price) and Sharon Cooper (Maureen Teefy).
In what is probably the most coveted appearance from the promotional tour of the cast of Grease 2, this rare 39-year-old performance of Adrian Zmed and his T-Birds (Chris McDonald, Peter Frechette, and Leif Green) from the 1980s hit television show, SOLID GOLD, has surfaced on YouTube! This is NOT to be missed. So c’mon and tell us Johnny….
