News   PHOTO CALL: Original West Side Story Stars, Including Chita Rivera, Visit Carol Lawrence at Handle With Care
 
Chita Rivera and other members of the original Broadway company of West Side Story paid a visit to their original Maria, Carol Lawrence, at the March 2 performance of Jason Odell Williams' Handle With Care.

The show plays The Westside Theatre (407 West 43 Street) now through March 9th.

Along with Lawrence (West Side Story, Kiss of the Spider Woman), the cast includes Sheffield Chastain (White Christmas, Is He Dead?), Charlotte Cohn (Coram Boy, La Boheme) and Jonathan Sale (The Shape of Things, Soldier's Play). Karen Carpenter (Love, Loss and What I Wore) directs. 

"Handle With Care tells the story of a young Israeli woman who reluctantly travels with her grandmother to America," press notes state. "Fate and hilarious circumstances bring together the young woman, who has little command of English, and a young American man with little command of romance. Is their inevitable love an accident? Or destiny generations in the making?"

The creative team includes David Arsenault (set design), Cory Pattak (lighting design), Wojcik|Seay (casting) and Brierpatch Productions (general management).
