West Side Story: A Movie/Musical that Packs a Powerful Punch:


Recommended Posts

West Side Story, both as a stage musical and  as a movie, packs a terrifically powerful punch.  Here's why:


A)  The fact that the original composers of West Side Story managed to get together and create a rare but fantastic musical that radically differs from most other musicals in that it's about many things that happen in real life, throughout our society and throughout the world:  Racial and Ethnic tensions, Urban gang warfare, people crossing the racial, color, ethnic and religious barriers to fall in love, date and even marry, often even in the midst of conflict between parties, and, in general, people fighting simply because they know no other way(s) to communicate with each other.
