West Side Story alive with dance and drama

See also

The musical West Side Story is now on stage at Fisher Theatre. This is the killer show to see if you want to see choreography at its finest. The chorus really makes this show, with all the sophisticated and energetic dance moves. You will love the music from the show, including songs like "Tonight" and "Maria".

The story line is rather difficult to gulp by today's standards. Essentially you have two groups of thugs who fight each other to "control the street." What kind of idiot does that? Didn't they have better things to do like go to school or work a part time job to save for college or a new apartment? Apparently, this neighborhood was so much a headache to Manhattan, the city decided to get rid of the riff raff by leveling the area. They built Lincoln Center and cultural buildings in its place.

If you don't mind the utter stupidity of thugs fighting over nothing, and idiot teens sleeping together within 24 hours of meeting, then this is a great show to see. For those who are interested in seeing world-class dance, this is THE show to see.
