Shakespeare A staging of West Side Story by The Trinity Repertory Company in Boston: "Dehnert and choreographer Sharon Jenkins make a number of choices, aesthetic and economic. (It's not easy for a standing repertory company to stage Broadway musicals.) Singing is a higher priority than acting. The choreography chooses sensuality over grace. The young performers, many of them making their Trinity debuts, stress innocence over experience. These may be valid artistic choices for "West Side Story," but they also prevent the musical from being all that it should be."
