STAGE TUBE: Ogunquit's WEST SIDE STORY Cast Gets 'Cool' in Central Park
West Side Story, one of the greatest love stories of all time, recently played at the Ogunquit Playhouse stage, helmed by Broadway veteran director BT McNicholl. Choreographer Jeffry Denman reunited the cast to give "Cool" a new life in Central Park. Check out the full number below!
Denman writes: "This is my take on "Cool" set against Central Park based on the Ogunquit Playhouse version of West Side Story from summer 2013 and featuring almost all of that wonderful cast. Shot in three hours on an iPad and a digital camera. Just trying to have some fun in the park. Hope you enjoy!"
West Side Story is an American musical with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and conception and choreography by Jerome Robbins. It was inspired byWilliam Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. The musical explores the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds. The members of the Sharks from Puerto Rico are taunted by the Jets, a Polish-American working-class group. The young protagonist, Tony, one of the Jets, falls in love with Maria, the sister of Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks.
