Book writer and now director Arthur Laurents has piloted his infamous gang members, the Jets, out of lovable-ruffian territory into a darker zone, where they often exude a sense of reckless menace. That’s good, since Matt Cavenaugh’s Tony never lets you forget you’re watching a musical. Karen Olivo’s Anita offers a potent mix of sexual bravado and streetwise sadness, and Josefina Scaglione embodies Maria with heart-lifting simplicity. Of course the chief glory of this classic is the Leonard Bernstein score, terrific sounding with a full orchestra. Overall, this subtly recalibrated revival is Broadway in very fine form: standing up to face darkness head on, and unafraid to be a thing of beauty.—AF

This three man show became an international sensation —by good-humoredly layering performance art with viewer participation. Not so much an actual story as a series of wacky vignettes, this long-running revue might make allusions to heavier issues such as the loss of community, the effects of modernity, and postmodern art pretensions, but when it does, the players always do so with a light-hearted, good-natured, interactive touch.
