Music and choreography are magnificent. The big problem is the actor who plays Tony - his voice is mediocre, and I can't understand how he got the lead. He has no range and only rarely hits a note that sounds like a professional singer's voice. ...continued

Have watched the movie many, but this is the first time I have seen it on stage. Choreography and stage settings were excellent. Music, as expected, was great! Bit surprised, but pleased, that PRs spoke Spanish among themselves.

Great musical! Seats are tight in the Colonial, but the dancing and depiction of this classic were good. My favorite part....Gee, Officer Krumkie.

Description

More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it’s back, and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath,_ West Side Story_ soars as the greatest love story of all time. Directed by its two-time Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents, West Side Story remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The new Broadway cast album of West Side Story recently won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theater as “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.”
