Argh! West Side Story was so good I can’t get it out of my mind!

It was def­i­nitely one of the best musi­cals I’ve ever watched. All the actors, singers, dancers and musi­cians are all at the top of their profession.

I know It’s hard to imag­ine what I’m talk­ing about. You should see it for your­self from the YouTube video below.

The video shows the New York casts (who per­formed at Istana Budaya for the past weeks) per­form­ing 2 songs — “Tonight” and “Amer­ica” — in a spe­cial appear­ance at the Dutch Musi­cal Awards Gala 2009.

I love every­thing about this musi­cal. From the chore­og­ra­phy, music, light­ing effects, mov­ing stage to every­thing else. And I’m amazed by how cre­ative they are to actu­ally per­form the dream scene and the rape scene on stage.

Besides, their act­ing skills were really good. My eyes water when Maria hold­ing the half-dead Tony singing the finale song in the last scene.

But what puts me off is, I think Scott Suss­man is too old to be the main char­ac­ter Tony. He looks like a 30 some­thing uncle. I can tell that even when I was sit­ting at the upper cir­cle which was like 3km away from the stage.

Apart from that, every­thing else was per­fect. It was really an amaz­ing musi­cal, very enter­tain­ing, very touch­ing and very inspiring.

Yes you missed some­thing incred­i­ble indeed. But it’s ok lah, you can catch it when you are back to your “home­town” any­way right?
