Elgort cast as Tony, Steven Spielberg's #WestSideStory
remake is well on track for a summer production start. And as screenwriter Tony Kushner explains, the new movie will take its cues from the original Broadway show, not the Oscar-winning 1961 film: "Our version is not meant to wipe out the original film, which is a masterpiece. It's just meant to be a new interpretation." Either way, rest assured: "No one will leave the movie without hearing all the classic songs."

She was a little all over the place, that was for sure. But the good news is that when she loved, she loved big. And if she loved you, you knew she loved you. You never had to wonder.✨ #when2becomewilliams #westsidestory #myforever

This will be our reply to violence:
to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before. - Leonard Bernstein
"When I first returned to New York having graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, I didn't know how to find a job, and it terrified me... I made a list of all my favorite plays, some famous and some quite obscure, and at the head of the list I typed, "Plays directed by Mr. Prince." Beside every play's name I put the name of a theatre and its production dates. I picked theatres all over the country, far from Broadway -remember, there was no Internet then and little opportunity to check up on me." SENSE OF OCCASION by Harold Prince
Impossible to pick just 1 scene. So trailer it is! WEST SIDE STORY(1961) is the American romantic musical tragedy film directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins. The film is an adaptation of the Broadway musical (1957), which in turn was inspired by Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet.
The story is set in the 1950s NYC Upper West Side, an ethnic, blue-collar neighborhood. The musical explores the rivalry between the 2 teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds: the Jets (a white gang) and the Sharks (from Puerto Rico). The young protagonist, Tony, a former member of the Jets and best friend of the gang's leader, falls in love with Maria (Natalie wood), the sister of Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks. The dark theme, music, dance scenes, and focus on social problems marked a turning point in musical theatre. All of Bernstein's score for the musical became classic including "America", “Somewhere” and "I Feel Pretty”.
Fun fact, Natalie Wood doesn’t actually sing in the movie, her voice was instead interpreted by Janet Leigh. The director also forbid the actors of the different gangs to talk or even have lunch in between takes, to increase the rivalry between both gangs.
The film received high praise from critics and viewers, and became the 2nd highest grossing film of the year in the USA. It won 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, becoming the record holder for the most wins for a movie musical.
The film has been deemed "culturally significant" by the United States Library of Congress and was selected for the National Film Registry in 1997. Spielberg is currently making a remake of it and I already can’t wait to see it.

공연을 부득이 취소한 아쉬움을 날려준 <웨스트 사이드 스토리>. 프롤로그가 지나자 오프닝신부터 눈을 뗄 수 없고, 귀를 쫑긋하지 않을 수 없었다.
유럽계 이민자 청년 갱단 제트파가 대사없이 손가락을 튕기며 등장한다. 푸에르토리코 출신 샤프파와 갈등과 다툼을 역동적으로 표현한 세련된 안무에 재즈스러운 클래시컬 음악을 덧입혔다.
작품 내내 스토리 라인을 유지한채 오프닝과 같은 놀라운 연출이 지속된다. 이미 알던 아리아 ‘Tonight’, ‘I feel pretty’ 를 맥락에서 만나니 반갑기 이를 데 없다. 특히 tonight 성악하며 발표도 해서 더욱!
처음 들었던 ‘somewhere’, ‘America’, ‘Cool’ 등도 친숙했다. 또한 뮤지컬에서 자주 접하는 주요 배역이 서로의 이야기로 만드는 ensemble을 ‘tonight’으로 들을 땐 전혀 기대치 않아 살짝 소름!
공동 감독이자 뮤지컬적인 연출과 안무를 담당한 제롬 로빈스는 올해로 탄생 100주년! 그는 1/3이 촬영된 시점에서 짤렸다고 한다. 춤에 대한 비중을 줄이지 않고, 마음에 들지 않으면 재촬영을 계속했다. 제작비가 이미 훌쩍 초과되어 감당할 수 없었던 탓.
그럼에도 기여한 바가 크기에 아카데미 감독상을 로버트 와이즈와 함께 받았다. 원작 뮤지컬 음악을 거의 그대로 썼는데도 번스타인은 영화 제작에 참여치 않아 아카데미 음악상은 편곡을 담당한 사람들에게 돌아갔다.
해외에선 오페라 작품으로 만들어 지는 듯. 작년인가 재작년 잘츠부르크 페스티벌 무대에 오른 걸로 기억한다. 여행 준비하며 예매하려니 이미 Sold Out! 음반으로 성악가들이 부른 걸 들어보니 역시 좋다.
셰익스피어 <로미오와 줄리엣>과 엔딩신이 다른 점도 무척 맘에 든다. 미국 기준으로 1961년에 만들어졌으니, 50년이 훌쩍 넘은 작품임에도 음질과 화질 외에 어색함 없다. 스필버그가 리메이크하기로 결정했다고 하는데 벌써 기대가 차오른다.

(아래는 영어공부를 위해 썼습니다. 굳이 본다면 엉망진창이란 점 꼭 염두해주세요^^ 이리 온라인에 띄우면 쪽팔려서라도 바짝 할듯요!!! 쿨럭!)
I sorried that I cancelled the ticket which is NDT1 (Nederlands Dans Theater) perfermonce because my personal reason last weekend. But, a old musical film made me happy.
Jerome Robbins was born 100 years ago. He created choreography in a work. I was touched in heart since opening scene. He described gangs of conflict and fighting with modern dance and ballet over music.
I already knew aria ‘tonight’, and song it on the stage in the old days, that I’ve been learning vocal music just hobby. When I met the it in the film, It filled my heart with gladness.
Especially ‘tonight’ of ensemble made a deep impression me. Main cast (Tony, Maria, Riff, Bernardo, etc) told story each other with melody as Its became a great song.
I honestly didn’t expect fun and guessed boring. It was made over 50 years ago. But, music is jazzy classical, dancing is refined, and story is appropriate. I could know that West Side Story has been remaking and performing in the world, tonight.
