Cast Announced For The Revival Of West Side Story

After much speculation and rumors complete casting was announced today for the upcoming revival of West Side Story. The cast of this landmark musical will feature an array of Broadway veterans as well as a few newcomers. Playing the star crossed lovers Tony and Maria are Matt Cavenaugh(A Catered Affair,Grey Gardens,Urban Cowboy)and 21 year old Broadway newcomer and acclaimed opera singer from Buenos Aires Josefina Scaglione. Rounding out the cast is one of my favorites Karen Olivo (In The Heights) as Anita. Portraying the parts of rival gang leaders Riff and Bernardo are Cody Green and George Akram. It has been almost 30 years since the last revival and I can't wait to see this one. Expect West Side Story to be a big contender come Tony time.
