West Side Stories – The Making Of A Classic

Now here’s a documentary that is well worth watching! West Side Story is a ground breaking musical in both music and in choreography. The story is a modern take on the classic story of Romeo And Juliet, but with music written by Leonard Bernstein and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

This is a fascinating watch! The documentary takes you through the creative, audition and rehearsal process of West Side Story, with interviews with original cast members, Hal Prince and Stephen Sondheim himself. What more could you ask for on Boxing Day?

If you don’t know West Side Story, I suggest you at least get familiar with it by listen to the soundtrack on Youtube. Its truly a master piece!!


PS – As its on BBC iplayer, make sure you watch it before it expires at the end of Jan 2017
