CD

Overview

West Side Story has returned to Broadway in a new production directed by its two-time Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents. The score, by multiple Tony and Grammy Award winners Leonard Bernstein (music) and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics), is widely regarded as one of Broadway's finest and includes "Tonight," "America,"
"Maria," "I Feel Pretty," "Somewhere," and "One Hand, One Heart."

This groundbreaking production offers a bold new design that builds on the show's raw power and emotion to create a fresh experience unlike any that came before it. The cast includes Matt Cavenaugh (A Catered Affair, Grey Gardens) as Tony, Karen Olivo (In the Heights) as Anita, Cody Green (Movin' Out) as Riff, and George Akram (The Farrelly's Stuck on You) as Bernardo. The role of Maria is played by Broadway newcomer Josefina Scaglione, a classically trained opera singer scouted from Buenos Aires to fill the leading role.

Don't miss the Barnes & Noble Exclusive edition of the album, which includes three bonus tracks. From the Label
