West Side Story at Sadlers Wells

Wow what a performance.  Love love loved this evening’s performance of West Side Story at Sadlers Wells.  Such energy, colour and spirit.

westsidestory1_2640587bIt’s been many years since I’ve seen West Side Story and I was excited to see what this production had made of it.  The choreography was fabulous.  The band brilliant.  The dancers sooo in time and in tune with each other as well as the beat.  The story zipped along at a pace with the dance telling the story as well as the words.

The stage setting was simple but effective.  The lighting enhanced the stage and story further.

I thoroughly recommend this production.  I believe it’s being taken on a national tour after the run in London draws to a close.  Go…
