PHOTO CALL: West Side Story Tour Cast Protests Prop 8 with NOH8 Photo Shoot

News   PHOTO CALL: West Side Story Tour Cast Protests Prop 8 with NOH8 Photo Shoot Some members of the West Side Story touring cast recently participated in the NOH8 Campaign.

Created by photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley, NOH8 is a photographic silent protest in response Proposition 8, the amendment to California's Constitution that bans same-sex marriage in the state. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with "NOH8" painted on one cheek in protest.

 

Here is a look at the cast's NOH8 photos:


 

The West Side Story tour stars Ali Ewoldt as Maria opposite Kyle Harris as Tony. Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents' Broadway direction was recreated for the tour by David Saint, the associate director on Broadway. The original Jerome Robbins choreography was reproduced by Tony Award nominee Joey McKneely (The Boy from Oz, The Life).
