WEST SIDE STORY (Theatrical Release USA 1961)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

West Side Story—classic musical with a tough theme—introduces a terrific musical score and allows a broad range of expression for dancers, singers, and actors. The story moves with finesse through well-written dialogue and excellent choreography. The actors’ costuming, body movement, and facial features completely support the story. Well done for Director Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise.


Rival neighborhood gangs make it tough to live and to love in the neighborhood.
