What a masterpiece. The quality at the 5th Avenue theatre is not short of amazing. The set, lights, and costume are spectacular. West Side Story is a hit! Standout performance by Danielle Marie Gonzalez who played Anita. She captivated you the moment she stepped foot on that stage

3.0 star rating Lb Jordan from Puyallup, Washington


Dancing outstanding but more of the jets than the sharks, why? Singing was good but the outstandings were Maria & Anita actress especially The musical plot was disjointed and confusing. Had I read the program I would have seen the 2nd act which in the end was a let down. The orchestra should have taken a bow for they were outstanding. Matinee audience as Seattle audiences go are are always appreciative and they didn’t fail to shows their appreciation though I felt they were overly generous.

I watched this show, and while it was ok, it just wasn't great. The actress who plays maria is trying very hard.... but she's going thru the motions. Ex. her true love , Tony, is shot right in front of her, and she sobs, for exactly 1.5 min, and then stands up and walks to Chino and does the monologue about the gun . But really she should be devastasted.... hysterical.... sobbing so much she can barely deliver lines.... so tense that her anger is just visible on her body. But this actress is just delivering lines. The staging was lackluster. Many of the songs are just two people.... they sing, while staring at each other for 30 seconds.... but then they should be given something else to do. Put her in a "sweetheart cuddle", so they can both sing to the audience. Give them something else to do that reinforces their feelings, but makes it interesting. Tony delivers his songs, running from stage R to stage L and back again. Was this director out of ideas?
