Yeah, used to not really care either way about West Side. Then we decided that would be the winter musical at our school. We wound up watching it daily in the choir room and I fell in love with it. Plus the Russ Tamblyn rules. Sorry, been a fan of his since I was but a wee child.
I auditioned and got the part of Anybodys, so I am very partial to her character, mainly because I'm supposed to get in touch with the character. And I'm also an insufferable tomboy.
