Quotes & Highlights

The new Broadway cast album of West Side Story recently won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.

Description

More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it’s back on Broadway mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time. Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents’ Broadway direction will be recreated for the tour by David Saint, the Associate Director of Broadway. The original Jerome Robbins choreography is reproduced by Tony Award nominee Joey McKneely. **__

__**__West Side Story__ remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.”
