The production will be directed and choreographed by Joey McKneely, who reproduced the original Jerome Robbins choreography for the current revival of West Side Story at the Palace Theatre. McKneely is a two-time Tony nominee for his choreography for Smokey Joe's Cafe and The Life.
No other casting for the upcoming European/international tour has been announced.
Rehearsals for the West Side Story tour will begin in Germany May 4 with an official opening in Lyon, France, in June. The tour is currently scheduled to play stops in Spain, Japan, Israel, Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland.
The current New York revival, which officially opens March 19 at the Palace, boasts direction by Tony winner Laurents. (The European/international tour is not affiliated with the current Broadway production.)
