Stage and Cinema - Recommended

"...5-Starís revival, as hard-hitting as some of it is, loses a bit of emotional power with some awkward line readings, miscast adults (except for the great Skip Pipo as Lt. Schrank), and badly timed and unnuanced segues. Raben clearly had his hands full with a gigantic cast and orchestra (a joy to hear under Jeff Rizzoís kick-ass conducting), and only a few weeks of rehearsal, so the needed nuance may appear as the short, and already popular, run progresses. Iím so grateful that I get to hear the orchestrations and arrangements exactly as they were heard on opening night in 1957. This earnest production and itís rocko-socko-boffo leads will make anyone happy to be alive."

"...Inspired direction and innovative choreography reign supreme as 5-Star Theatricals revives and reinvigorates West Side Story, the 1957 Broadway classic about a boy and girl from rival teen gangs (one white, one Puerto Rican) who fall hopelessly in love on the mean streets of New York."
