HORRIBLE, Jan 01, 2011
reviewer: C from NEW YORK, NY
I am shocked at the people that gave this a good review. Obvious they have never seen the movie.
I can not describe the intensity of this movies performances that struck me so hard as a 12 yr.old girl and still does as an adult. I know every line, every step, every note.
I went into the theater with an open mind, but these performances were something to be desired and had Zero Emotion to them. I can only attribute this to the actors being too young and inexperianced in life to even grasp the deep emotions involved in acting out these parts. They read lines as though they were off a piece of paper. Not for one second did I feel that Maria and Tony loved eachother. My one star goes to the actor who played Anita, for her dancing/acting/singing. Poor thing, I felt like all the weight was on her shoulders to carry the show. Singing and dancing of the others were ok- but again emotionless. The set was not impressive, but that wouldn't have mattered if the performances came through.

More from the "hot" (and old) guy in the mezanine, Dec 25, 2010
reviewer: Robert Meachen from Burlington, Ontario, Canada
Not sure why my last post 5 minutes ago stated It was anon... I left my name and town etc. Any way, I was going on about the extreme heat in the upper mezanine and then spent 10 minutes reading other reviews posted here. For the record; we loved the Spanish dialogue which added some real spice to the show. I don't speak Spanish, but somehow understood what the scene was all about. Loved the Tony and Maria characters but the whole cast was lovely to watch and very emotive. But man, fix that @#*%$#@ temperature control next time eh! It cost you half a star!
New York rocks!

West Side was brilliant, theatre was not, Dec 25, 2010
reviewer: Anonymous from Anytown, AT 55555
Jsut left theater after Christmas night show. Cast was superb and the direction and choreograhy was excellent. Highly recommend this as great "old school" that never gets old. Tony was a superb artist with great voice. Unfortunately, had upper mezanine seats. Ok as theatres go, but someone forgot to turn heating down. After 30 minutes peaople started to leave and some did not come back, it was so hot. They charged $4 for small bottle of water, which is at least 800% mark up. We came down from Canada and felt that the show was spoiled for many because it became unbearably hot in the upper deck seats. I asked 3 employees to get someone to turn on the A/C but they said there was nothing they could do. We had to leave before end of show and that spoiled it for us. Sorry NY but this was not a good experience. As I said, great show, great cast but take my advice, stay away from the upper mezanine, unless you need to lose few pounds. As a sauna, this would work. Love NY and will come back.

English please, Oct 13, 2010
reviewer: Educated from Chicago, Ill.
To the Dubai person who wrote :"As for the CMG who writes that IT SHOULD HAVE ENGLISH only - I suggest he/she gets educated and learns another language!" Spanish is of little use in most of the world. I have two masters degrees and have studied three foreign languages (none of which were Spanish) plus Latin. I resent having Spanish thrust upon me. I, too, would prefer to see a show in English. I am less likely to see this one now that I know I won't understand much of the language.

Absolutely Delightful!!, Aug 23, 2010
reviewer: Isabella Jo from from Dubai but currently in NY, New York..
This was a truly fantastic show - the dancing was superb, the acting and singing excellent and Maria from Argentina was sensational - even more delightful was Anita - her voice, acting and dancing was mesmerizing. We walked in off the street and into a land of pure entertainment!! Thank you guys.............
As for the CMG who writes that IT SHOULD HAVE ENGLISH only - I suggest he/she gets educated and learns another language! Perhaps start with English and brush up on your spelling - audience not "audiance" as in your review........
CHEERS to West Side Story - pure delight!
