*West Side Story* this weekend

The fundraiser in-concert version at the Civic is virtually sold out, but you can try 325-2507.
A recent NPR interview with Stephen Sondheim (about his new book, Finishing the Hat) 
reveals some of his criticisms of Oscar Hammerstein and comments on Arthur Laurents' made-up slang in WSS and what Sondheim really wanted the phrase "Krup you!" to be. (Like this is some big surprise.)

LOL. Seriously. Did you see this "show"? The best thing about it was the guy who played Riff, and the band. I want my money back.

Yes, this one was pretty poor. Maybe this series needs to end.
