West Side Story
This production was beautiful, the dancers were increadable. The only thing that took away from the over all preformance was the large amount of dialog done in Spanish, I get that the show is about Puerto Ricans, and a little bit is not bad. I know the show and am familiar with what is going on, but for those who dont know the show and dont speak spanish, they would have missed large amounts of the plot with this being done.
The Broadway production was well sung and I would guess that the tour will cut the Spanish language sections out..a wise move. I am conversant in Spanish and could not understand parts of the show. The Jets were like Gap kids but the great score is always thrilling.
