I'd heard months ago that in this new production, the Puerto Ricans were actually going to speak in Spanish, so I HAD to go. This was the one production I'd pressured the school into buying tickets for.
As expected, I knew all the words to all the songs and mouthed them throughout the play - no I didn't sing out loud.
Since this is one movie I'd seen repeatedly, I knew what was coming and looked foreward to seeing how they'd stage the sequence.
There was actually very little Spanish - two songs were translated and every so often there'd be a phrase or two - and then it was often said in English.
It was fun, and I am glad I went... BUT...
Tony was wimpy - not the strong voice I expected; and Riff pronounced his words a little TOO clearly - he's a first generation New Yorker and a kid from the streets, that clear enunciation should've been toned down a bit.
I am still glad I saw it... now to find the video and watch THAT.
