Broadway@Google: West Side Story

Cast members from Broadway’s West Side Story John Arthur Greene (Riff), Mikey Winslow (Big Deal) & Shina Ann Morris (Consuela) vist Google New York to talk about their lastest and longest running production of West Side Story. Interviewed by Lee Stimmel, the cast members talk about the show’s history, how they landed their Broadway debut, their accounts of working with director Arthur Laurents and how the show’s social relevance has evolved over time. The show will close on January 2nd 2011. More than fifty years ago, a show about New York City changed musical theater forever. Now, it’s come home to make history once again. From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim — a collection of standards that includes “Tonight,” “America,” “Maria,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere” — is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. And the extraordinary, Tony®-winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance. This groundbreaking new production, directed by the legendary Mr. Laurents, offers a bold new design that builds on the show’s raw power and emotion to create a fresh experience unlike any that came before it. Don’t miss this thrilling presentation of a matchless work of art.
