Available as a limited edition four-disc boxed set with Blu-ray, newly restored DVD, tribute CD, and collectible memorabilia, Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins’s Oscar-winning 1961 “West Side Story” — based on the 1957 Broadway hit — now includes special featurettes that analyze and illuminate the film’s dance sequences and enduring legacy, plus song-specific commentary by out lyricist Stephen Sondheim.
I was fortunate to do the show many times. I think I eventually played every Jet in the cast. The score continues to be one of the most powerful and passionate scores in music theatre, and the roles are a gift for the actors who play them.
