Grease: Live Recruits the Film’s Original Frenchy and Doody for Cameo Appearances

Beauty school dropout no more.

Sunday’s performance of Grease: Live will have everything: A live studio audience, Boyz II Men, High School Musical’s Vanessa Hudgens, pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen, and now, cameos from the cast of the film version of Grease. According to the Associated Press, Didi Conn, who played Frenchy, and Barry Peal, who played Doody, will make small cameos in the stage show as a waitress at a malt shop and a TV producer, respectively. It’s a nice gesture to the past, and also chance for Conn, who sounds very much like Frenchy, to give the perfect description of Carly Rae Jepsen: “I started to cry. I think partly it was ‘That could be my daughter that I never had,’” Conn said of meeting Jepsen. “She is absolutely yummy-adorable.”
