April 8: While Anyone Can Whistle was struggling toward its premature closing at the Majestic Theatre, a revival of Sondheim and Laurents’ West Side Story had a revival 11 blocks uptown at City Center, with Julia Migenes as Maria, Don McKay as Tony and Luba Lisa as Anita. Also in the cast: Eliot Feld and Marilyn Cooper.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
