I've adored West Side Story for many years now. I think it has the most perfect soundtrack - from my favorite, "Something's Coming", to the booming "Dance at the Gym" to the sweet and romantic "One Hand One Heart".

It's not that the show has the most original story - we all know that the ill-fated young lovers of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet don't get a much better ending in West Side Story. But it's the music, the color and energy, that makes it easy to forget that fact for a little while.

The 2009 revival of West Side Story on Broadway, with Spanish woven into some of the songs, sold over a million tickets during its two years of performances.

A national tour of the 2009 revival began in October 2010 in Detroit, Michigan at the Fisher Theatre. Its success on tour has helped the production to continue on for another year. It arrives at the MSU Wharton Center tonight, and I am thrilled to be there.

Look for my review on www.fox47news.com 's homepage tomorrow.
