Bilingual Production of West Side Story

A new theatrical production of WEST SIDE STORY which just premiered in Washington, D.C., conducts an interesting experiment: the Puerto Rican characters sing all their songs in Spanish.

The director is 90-year-old Arthur Laurents, who wrote the musical's book over half a century ago.

The Washington Times review can be read here.

The production moves to Broadway in March.
