We at at Ceiba's before the performance! They have a GREAT pre-event 3 course meal for $30 if you show your ticket! The food was AMAZING and it is only a couple blocks from the National Theater.

This show was fantastic! The choreography was brilliant, the songs were lively and poignant and the cast did a terrific job of bringing this show to life. I would see it again!

The overall experience was great. There was just a woman in front of us who was on her from from time to time during the performance so that was a distraction. The play itself was great though!!

It was an amazing evening...the acting, the dance, the music (including the pit orchestra)...everything was amazing. Have known and loved West Side Story since its beginnings; last night was confirmation that Bernstein and all his collaborators...continued
