West Side Story (In Previews, Opens Feb. 20)

WESTSIDESTORYWest Side Story at The Broadway Theatre

We saw WSS in early previews December 14th wanting to love it.  We appreciated Ivo Van Hove’s contemporary direction, but hope for several production/casting adjustments before the February 20th opening allow us to give it the thumbs up. Fingers crossed!
