Hi there, Petzi!
Thanks for posting such a beautiful link, about how West Side Story is, indeed a story told through dance. That, in itself, is what makes West Side Story so, so different from other musicals, both on stage and on screen, and it, too, is what has made West Side Story the dynamic little package that it is.

West Side Story is a classic that's in a class all by itself, and that's part of the reason why! No other musical tells a story through dance. It's also why West Side Story, as MGM quotes," grows younger, unlike other classics.'
