After winning over 17 million viewers worldwide, Grease: Live received an unprecedented 10 Emmy nominations on July 14. Of course, fans were able to see Broadway boyfriend Aaron Tveit make greased lightning strike again on the small screen—but what of the magic going on behind the scenes? On August 15, Hamilton mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda hosted a panel discussion on Grease: Live’s success and creative process; in attendance were Hamilton’s Tony-winning director Thomas Kail, Tony winner William Ivey Long, Tveit, Hairspray Live! director Alex Rudzinski and casting director extraordinaire Bernard Telsey (see below). Both Kail and Rudzinski received nominations for helming the broadcast, and Long nabbed a nod for costume design. (We’re still not over Keke Palmer’s “Freddy My Love” costume change.) Telsey was also recognized for his superb casting. Take a look at the photos, and give ’em hell, Rydell! Star Files View Commentslast_img
