FLASH FRIDAY: WEST SIDE STORY - All The Way
by Pat Cerasaro - Nov 4, 2011

Has Broadway ever had the pleasure to hear a better score than that of WEST SIDE STORY? Furthermore, has a better movie musical ever been made of a Broadway show? Honestly, does musical theatre get any more breathlessly exhilarating and passionately evocative as WEST SIDE STORY unquestionably is? Did Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins somehow actually improve on perfection in the original production of the show with their 1960 film version of the Shakespeare-based, modern Manhattan-set property? Well, I suppose it all depends on your point of view, but for many Broadway babies WEST SIDE STORY is simply as good as it gets as far as musical tragedy or musical comedy is concerned, and, for many film buffs, there are few movie musicals as potent, powerful and prescient as WEST SIDE STORY undoubtedly is in its multi-Oscar-winning film iteration. It is truly the best of both worlds for the duration of its running time, somehow managing to put across the highly theatrical storytelling techniques employed by master-directors Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins, and, also, present the realistic, rough and tumble life of Tony and Maria - the doomed lovers at the core of the story. More than anything else, though, it is the impossible-to-beat score for WEST SIDE STORY by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim - along with Arthur Laurents tight and terse book (enhanced for the film by Ernest Lehmann) - that makes it the timeless classic for the ages that it is. Name one other score that boasts as many songs etched into the very culture of America itself as this one - "Tonight", "Maria", "Cool", "A Boy Like That", "I Feel Pretty", "America", "Somewhere"; and, the list goes on.

Twitter Watch: Lea Michele Talks Missing Out on Broadway's WEST SIDE STORY
by BWW - Oct 14, 2011

On Twitter Watch, Lea Michele wrote 'Having another one of those beyond thankful moments at work.. When west side story came to bway a few years ago I wanted to do it SO bad! When I didn't get it was so devastated. If someone told me then that a few years later I'd be playing the same part but on a tv show!...I wouldn't have believed it. As cheesy as it is..dreams come true! Thats why never give up & when one door closes a huge window will open.'
