Sunday’s broadcast of “Grease: Live” on the Fox Network, starring Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens and Aaron Tveit, raised the bar for live TV presentations, according to reviewer Jeremy Gerard, writing on Deadline.com.

“From the first seconds of the three-hour broadcast to the exuberant finale that returned cast, crew and live audience to the streets, everything about the presentation of this 1972 musical salute to the late 1950s said to a 2016 audience: You’re in good hands,” Gerard writes.

He adds: “NBC’s three recent outings with these live presentations of branded musicals — ‘The Sound Of Music,’ ‘Peter Pan’ and most recently ‘The Wiz!’ — have had varied success, but none hit the stratospheric highs of this show.”
