[Archived clipping from "The New York Times". There was some confusion as to who attended the closed ceremony. Sources claimed that Anita and Riff (RIP) had attended but no witnesses came forward to verify. The groom and his best man were also featured in the paper the following day, albeit in a different section of the newspaper.]

The last two pictures are my favorites Such silliness with the Jets! And the fake wedding announcement is cute and amusing both.

Interesting that it lists June. My movie soundtrack indicates the time was at the end of summer, probably August.

It's even more interesting since it lists 1957 and that shot is from the 1961 movie.

I suppose, although it seems like most people feel that the movie is set around the same time as the original play. Maybe it's because of that ad, haha.

I'll have to check to make sure, but I think the novelization says June. Hmm. Personally, I date it as June 15-16th, 1957. I forget exactly why (probably has something to do with my version of fandoms and birthdays and school schedules) but I liked the idea of Tony's death being midnight on Father's Day, too, I think. Which is even more fun given the Carol Lawrence tidbit petzipellepingo found. :)

Also, these photos are awesome. Thanks! :)

It opened at the Winter Garden on September 26. 1957. But, of course, Laurents, etc. could have chosen a date for the contents to actually occur and that could be any time.

I like your dates! And yeah, those are neat photos.

Wish we could have been there, sigh.

Thanks! I also liked that Flag Day is the 14th, the day before the playground brawl and Schrank kicking the Sharks out of Doc's, haha. XD
