Highlights from Carnegie Hall Production of West Side Story

Carnegie Hall's large-scale production of West Side Story stars Skylar Astin as Tony, Bianca Marroquín as Anita and Morgan Hernandez, an 18-year-old student at the Boston Conservatory, as Maria. The production plays the Knockdown Center, a 50,000-square-foot former factory located in Maspeth, Queens that now serves as a "space dedicated to cross-disciplinary projects and collaborations.” The cast also includes 14 area high school students as well as a chorus of some 200 students from 25 high schools that sing new choral arrangements created for the production by Thomas Cabaniss. Amanda Dehnert and Marin Alsop helm the production.
