Beat The Heat With Broadway's Coolest Show West Side Story

Being a big fan of the movie I was thrilled when it was announced the West Side Story was coming back to Broadway after an almost thirty year absence.Sure I knew the stage production would be different from the movie. They usually are. I didn't care. I just wanted to see it. I mean how can you listen to that music and not be moved? I dare you to try. So there I am at the Palace Theatre sitting in Row P of the Orchestra getting ready for the show to begin. The lights dim,the curtain rises, and the Orchestra starts to play. For the next 2 1/2 hrs I was transfixed by what I was seeing up on that stage. Now I have always been a big Karen Olivo fan since In The Heights. She did not disappoint. Evidently the Tony Voters agreed with me cause last month she won a much deserved Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. That being said the rest of the cast was just as good. Talk about working their butts off. I'm glad I went to see it and if you get the chance to see it I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.
