Academy Award Winning “West Bank Story” 2006
Musical Staging and Choreography by Raymond Del Barrio
“It is the 50th Anniversary of West Side Story, the film West Bank Story is a classic love story reminding us, with great humor, that things have not changed. We need to understand and share our lives. I laughed really hard at West Bank Story, especially the staging and choreography. From the beginning finger snaps (truly funny), 2 gangs and other familiar West Side Story Trade marks, cleverly staged and choreographed by Ramon Del Barrio. It knocked me out that it was Ramon’s work being that he is a friend and also touring with me in my Broadway show CHITA RIVERA: THE DANCERS LIFE.West Bank Story is a very funny outlook on a serious subject.
Ramon you did a great job!!! CHITA RIVERA
