West Side Story Wows Audiences
After weeks and long hours of rehearsals—singing, dancing, acting—the Jets and the Sharks are about ready to rumble.
The Nyack College Drama Department will roll out the red carpet for its cast of West Side Story at the American Theatre of Actors, 314 West 54th Street (near 8th Avenue) in Manhattan presenting its premiere performance on Friday, December 2 at 8:00 p.m. Four additional evening shows take place on December 3, 8, 9, and 10; two matinees on December 4 and 11 at 2:00 p.m.
You do not want to miss this remarkable crew of Nyack students and faculty in the reprise the Jerome Robbins version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet with Leonard Bernstein’s extraordinary music and Stephen Sondheim’s unforgettable lyrics, all presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
Get your tickets here today. If you already have purchased advance tickets, spread the word and invite family and friends!
NOTE: Don't take our word for it...how's this for a "two-thumbs-up" review?
"This cast, crew and set need to move from off-Broadway (although perfect for this production at the American Theatre of Actors) to a Broadway Theatre!!!
The tickets will quickly become sold out, once the public gets a glimpse of this talented, emotional and timely production of West Side Story.
My daughter Lisa and I went to reunite and reminisce with long-time friend David Turk. We were so taken by the production, I was still wiping my eyes when I left the Theatre. Under David's direction, his cast, crew, designers, co-directors, choreographer, Mary Gatchell and orchestra conducted by Darryl Jordan, created the most heartfelt production of West Side Story I have seen in decades. It brought back many personal and meaningful memories for me.
Go see it, while the tickets last !!! You will LOVE it! ♥♥♥" --Ginny Lee Davenport
