Carol Lawrence Remarks On Theatre Return & Remembers WEST SIDE STORY

Carol Lawrence Remarks On Theatre Return & Remembers WEST SIDE STORYBroadway headliner and recognizable TV and film star Carol Lawrence remarks on her return to the theatre as part of the cast of HANDLE WITH CARE, currently at The Westside Theatre, as well as New York versus Los Angeles, WEST SIDE STORY memories and more in a new interview.

Commenting upon her return to the stage and leaving LA behind, Lawrence wryly asserts, "I miss everything I did 100 years ago. California's not for me. No tingle out there. Over 18, they won't look at you. They toss your photos without even opening them."

The original WEST SIDE STORY Maria also reflected on her time on the road with the iconic Leonard Bernstein/Stephen Sondheim/Arthur Laurents musical and how it compares to her most recent role.

"You wonder, 'Have I strength to deliver eight performances a week?' Risking the world's sharpest audiences and toughest critics? And the pace is different. We broke in 'West Side Story' on the road two months. Now, one week of previews and we open," she says.

Lawrence adds of theatre today versus back in the Golden Age, "I'm used to a larger theater and not used to today's high promotional super electronics. You need a degree to survive the terminology and abbreviations and every minute being blasted on Twitter and Facebook."
