West Side Story's got Everything--There's no Question About it:

West Side Story, as a movie-musical, is phenomenally beautiful...there's no two ways about it. The fact that is is so phenomenal is what makes this great, golden oldie but keeper of a classic movie-musical so irresistible to me, and why I feel beckoned to come and watch it, whether it be on TV, or in a great big, wide screen, in a real movie theatre, with the lights down low, and with other people, whether I know them or not. What is somewhat bothersome to me, however, is the fact that so many people nowadays think that they'd rather not have to sit among people they don't know, even if it only be to watch a movie. I mean...it's not like hitchhiking or anything like that.Collapse )

REVIEW: West Side Story at The New Alexandra Theatre

by Dan Richards

Every time I sit in my seat for a Stage Experience production, I feel a little flutter of excitement. Judging by the archive of performances over the last 15 years, The Alex and Pollyann Tanner always set the bar incredibly high...and have yet to miss it!

West Side Story is a musical based on the book by Arthur Laurents, inspired by the Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet.
