Review from Bev Scott Samuel

Great talent. Loved the original most, but this rendition was enjoyable. Lost some of it when they sang in Spanish as I don't speak Spanish.

Review from AH

My friend and I were both disappointed. We both compared it to the West Side Story performances we remember seeing in the past.

Review from Terry DeLorenzo

The orchestra were wonderful. The scenery, props, etc. were fabulous. The cast were just okay. Tony (lead) 's voice was not so good. Maria's voice was just okay. The biggest issue that I had was that this is supposed to be an american...continued

I was really excited to go see this musical because I absolutely loved the movie. I ended up leaving at intermission because I was not so crazy about the main actor's voice. The girl was pretty good, but the the entire musical was not what I...continued

Review from Pekegal

Leonard Bernstein's musical is a classic for any musical goer. The music itself, is the STAR of the show. The OC orchestra did a fabulous job with the difficult orchestration. The troupe's dancing was superb and captured the original style...continued

Review from Carol Holmes Keene

We loved this revival of West Side story which stayed true to it's roots of the original Broadway production. In several places, the story & singing brought tears to my eyes. The dancing & singing were superb.
The young woman who played Maria...continued

Review from Wendy Reinoehl

I did not enjoy this event.
The play was biligual, I was not aware of this and it ruined some of my favorite songs and parts of this performance. I am angry and disappointed. Very bad job.

I'd rate the singing and dancing five stars...such talented youngsters. But unfortunately, I'd rate the script a 3.

Review from howard zeff

The lady singers stole the show. Fabulous voices. The lead male singer was not up to his billing
I could not differentiate between the Sharks & the Jets. The PR's should have had slick hair & the Jets should have been in white tank tops. The gay...continued

The show was good but I was a bit disapointed with some of the singing. I am a native spanish speaker and I had a very difficult time understanding what "Maria" was singing about during some songs. It really took away from the story line for me....continued

Review from Jaynie

Fun musical with memorable music and nostagia. Our seats were off to the right, but were discounted from what we would have paid if going through SCR.

Review from Goldstar Member

The lead male actor, (tony) did not have the voice to carry the lead.
The dancing was a mix of 1960 rock plus modern ballet, not cool.
The sound was often of poor quality quite often.
Parts of the play seemed to drag, making it too long.
Lots...continued
