Prelude, Fugue & Riffs

From Arthur Laurents


by Arthur Laurents

In '08, I will be directing a very different production of West Side Story that will open on Broadway in late November. It will be completely contemporary without changing a word or a note, and without bringing in Uzis or mobile phones. One thing I can reveal here: the attitude of the gang members won’t so much change as be what it always should have been. One thing will be missing: Lenny. But the greatest theatre music in musical theatre history will be present and alive.
