Product Description

West Side Story ~ West Side Story

Amazon.com

When it comes to a definitive version of the legendary Bernstein/Sondheim musical, it's a toss-up between this stark document of the 1957 original production and the 1962 glossy film version. The latter won nine Oscars as opposed to the Broadway production's single Tony Award (for choreography!). Still, this probably deserves the nod, because: (a) some aficionados believe Larry Kert's performance as Tony is the best of all that followed; and (b) unlike the film version--see Natalie Wood--there's no "ghost" singing here, with this version creating two genuine stars: Carol Lawrence (now mostly forgotten, but Mrs. Robert Goulet during the '60s) and Chita Rivera (replaced in the film by Rita Moreno, creating confusion between the two actresses in most people's minds ever since). The music is always timeless. --Bill Holdship

Format: Audio CD
I re-bought this on CD after having seen the original with Larry Kert many years ago. The clerk said it sells out like it was issued yesterday. The songs are beautiful and touching and the theme is timeless. "Somewhere" was meant to be sung simply and not the overblown versions you hear today. And it is simply done on the original. The same is true of "One Hand, One Heart". The stage version soundtrack is far superior to the movie version. Even though the stage version is a little less polished, the intensity of the theme comes through much better. This must be part of any Show tune collection.

It is always a good idea to listen to the original B'Way cast, because in this instance, Bernstein (the composer) would have given his blessing to the cast and the performances. Maria is Carol Lawrence in the orignal B'Way recording. In the subsequent movie version, Natalie Wood was dubbed by soprano Marni Nixon, also the voice for Eliza in My Fair Lady, and for Anna, in The King and I.

I remember this album as a kid. Liked it then, and now.
Don't tell me how many words to use.
