Grease! Live was performed at the weekend in the USA to critical acclaim, and was made all the more respectful as Vanessa, who played Rizzo, had lost her father less than 24 hours earlier. We can only applaud her on her strength and resolution, especially since she is absolutely incredible in the role.
The actress, best known for her role as Gabriella in the High School Musical franchise, announced her father's death on Twitter, writing:

Not only was her performance wonderful, but celebrity viewers and critics alike tweeted their huge respect for Vanessa for going through with the show during such difficult personal circumstances.
