Wow, with all of the random topics in this forum and in the chat, I could make an hour long documentary called "When composers are bored"
I'm trying to entice a conversation on the score. OK, how about; how many of you performed or conducted West Side Story? Or, What's the big deal about West Side Story? Or, When will they do a sequel to West Side Story using today’s street gangs "East Side Story". OK, it was out of boredom that I open this score and started playing a bit of it on piano (which was a total joke), and prompted me to post this thread.
By the way ... when can we expect your documentary?
I have heard of this musical, but I have not seen it nor heard any music from it that I know of. Most I know about it is that it is a modern day version of Romeo and Juliet and that it was mentioned in the script for the 1980s Little Shop of Horrors.
