Personal Canon: West Side Story's Anita

Hello! I've been doing a "personal canon" series where I write what happened to a bunch of my favorite characters from old musicals that the movie/play didn't get into. I wrote about West Side Story's Anita here.

Thank you and thank you for the article and new information. That's an interesting point about Maria getting pregnant from Tony. That would mean that Maria's baby was half white non-Hispanic. It also goes to why I like West Side Story more than Romeo and Juliet. Maria didn't conveniently die. She was left living with all of the consequences of the rumble and that night. Having Tony's baby is a complicate melange of positive and negative emotions.

I loved that piece! Thanks for reccing it. I never hated Anita for her lie. Frankly, I blame Tony more for going out to look for Chino to kill him. Anita had good reason to believe that she was just making the Jets and Tony see the likely consequences of their actions. It was more than a little much to expect Anita to figure that it would push Tony into the streets looking for death.

Before I forget, here's the theatrical version of the attempted rape :
