Keep Cool Boy - The Jets Aloft in West Side Story
Keep Cool Boy - The Jets Aloft in West Side Story
Tim Fort
In a rare moment, before a Franz Kline-inspired setting, the Jets achieve a perfectly synchronized lift-off in this production of West Side Story mounted in celebration of Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday. After forty-six seasons at the Weston Playhouse in Vermont, this production also represented my 60th (and final) happy entanglement directing mostly musical theatre works on the playhouse's historical stage. Twenty-seven performers – from newly minted conservatory graduates to Broadway veterans – enabled this epic work to fly.
