For Ashley again. You asked if Corey Stoll could sing. I don’t think Lt. Schrank, the character he plays, has a singing part in the original movie or play. But I could be wrong. And I’m not sure how the musical score is changing for the new version.
Ugh, yeah, I know. I know the premise of West Side Story of course, but I can’t really handle musical films on small screens. I’m sure my neighborhood indie theatre will screen it at some point soon, though I apparently missed it in August 2018.
The show also was last revived in 2009, and I didn’t start going to the theatre regularly until 2011. But I’ll keep an eye out for performances moving forward.
I was just thinking about how weird it was that my high school didn’t do West Side Story, but then I remembered that my high school was 99% white and my drama teacher is the kind of person who would actually take that into consideration.
At the very least, I’ll see this version in theatres! (HYH field trip?)
