Whatever happened to good old middle class high schoolers getting bombed, having premarital sex and wearing ridiculous fashions? Whither the deviant nobody? These days, pop culture is filled with deviant somebodies whose parents (or handlers, or managers, or zookeepers, or whatever it is people who give birth in Hollywood these days are called) delegate parenting duties to credit cards and club bouncers. Nobody wants to know what Jack and Diane are up to; presumably because their greatest troubles are not whether to buy the latest Louis Vuitton or the latest Chanel or, ohmygod, BOTH. But Lauren Conrad's life is beyond boring, faux trips to Paris or not. Give us gritty, working class substance! Give us Grease! Better yet, give us a Grease sing-a-long at the Inwood Theatre that we may relive our younger years fondly, back when we thought high school was going to be about leather pants and backseat sex, instead of Juicy Couture warm-ups and the ever-present threat of The Herp. Get to warming up your voice ASAPânobody wants to be the jerk who can't hit the "Summer Nights" high note. Rock your bobbie-sox and pompadours at the sing-a-long Grease screening midnight Friday and Saturday at the Inwood, 5458 W. Lovers Lane. Visit landmarktheatres.com.
