Every time I put on a frilly dress—especially one with excellent twirling capability—somewhere, in the back of my mind, Anita’s voice loudly sings, “I feel pretty! Oh! So Pretty!”. And as I hop around the room, pretending like I a have the coordination for Broadway choreography, I think about West Side Story and imagine I’m a part of it.
West Side Story is the one musical of which I have somehow become an amateur expert. I studied it in school, have heard it sung by friends (in and out of key) in ranges from soprano, alto, tenor—and once falsetto, and had the dancing broken down by a sister in love with its motion and color.
This year, Jessica Goldman, Courtney Mignery and Chad Readler are planning “Tonight, Tonight! A Fashionably Late Event” for April 19th. The event, an annual fundraiser held in conjunction with the 2012 CAPA Gala, will have hors d’oeuvres and cocktails and later, will whisk attendees to the 8pm production of Broadway Columbus’ West Side Story.
Join us for an evening of singing, dancing and musical fighting action!
And you know, I will definitely be there, twirling dress and all!
