I Had A Chance To Watch

Broadway : the American Musical, Episode Five : Tradition . The first ten minutes are devoted to West Side Story and includes interviews with Jerome Robbins, Stephen Sondheim, Hal Prince, Arthur Laurents, critic Frank Rich, composer Jonathan Sheffer and Julie Taymor. Clips include one from the Ed Sullivan Show of Carol Lawrence and Larry Kert singing Tonight, clips of American & Cool from the film and a few stills from the 1957 production rehearsals.

Well worth catching if you can find it.

"Cool" performance on Ed Sullivan
If anyone could send me a link or tell where I can purchase the Sept 1958 performance on Sullivan, please, please let me know. There's only two seconds of it on the Jerome Robbins pbs special, but it looks riveting. Dying to see the whole thing!
