More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it's back, and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, WEST SIDE STORY soars as the greatest love story of all time. Tony® Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents’s Broadway direction is recreated for the tour by David Saint, the Associate Director on Broadway. WEST SIDE STORY remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The new Broadway cast album of WEST SIDE STORY recently won the 2010 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Show Album. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway's finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as "Something's Coming," "Tonight," "America," "I Feel Pretty" and "Somewhere."

BWW Reviews: Mit GREASE beschwingt in die Ära des Rock'n'Roll
by Iris Moebius - Apr 13, 2014

Bei Produktionen von bekannten Musicals mit noch viel bekannteren Songs aus dem englischen Sprachraum stellt sich immer die Frage, wie solche in Deutschland umgesetzt werden sollen. Shows wie Mamma Mia entschieden sich fur eine komplette Übersetzung, die kurzliche Tour von West Side Story wurde komplett auf Englisch mit deutschen Übertiteln aufgefuhrt. Grease wahlte einen uberraschend gelungen Mittelweg mit deutschen Dialogen und Gesangstexten in Englisch. So konnte jeder die gekannten Hits (im Kopf) mitsingen und trotzdem der Handlung problemlos folgen. Eine solche Umsetzung ist sicher nicht bei jedem Musical moglich, aber bei Grease, wo die Song kaum zum Handlungsverlauf beitragen, funktioniert es hervorragend. (more...)
