Moving to the City
Like many other people chasing for success, Travolta moved to New York City. He dropped out of school and things were not going well for him in his new place. He got minor roles in commercials. Finally, he decided to move to Los Angeles. Here, he was able to secure the role of Danny Zuko in the Broadway show, Grease.
Though Grease on Broadway was a local hit, it was undoubtedly his role in Welcome Back, Kotter that introduced him to the rest of the world. Vinnie Barbarino captured the hearts of hundreds of women. Travolta claimed that he struggled pulling off the role of a cool character. However, his fans would say he did a perfectly good job.
