West Side Story Makes One Boy's Dreams Come True

Last week I wrote a blog about how the cast of Rock of Ages were raising money for the relief effort in Haiti and now comes news that the cast of West Side Story came together to grant the wish of a very special fan. On February 3rd fourteen year old Queen's native by the name of Elijah was treated along with his family to a performance of West Side Story. Following the show he was given a private backstage tour with the cast and crew where cast member and Tony Winner Karen Olivo presented him with a souvenir West Side Story sweatshirt with the words "Future Director" inscribed on it. This was all possible thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Metro New York that grants wishes of children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. What a great story. Kudos to the cast and crew of West Side Story for making this one fan's dream come true.
