'West Side Story' a hit in previews

Posted on

Broadway audiences just met a girl named Maria: The revival of West Side Story grossed over $1 million in its first week of preview performances. (The only show that grossed more that week was Wicked.) The bilingual revival, directed by the show’s librettist Arthur Laurents, opens March 19, and stars Matt Cavenaugh, Josefina Scaglione, Karen Olivo, Cody Green, and George Akram.
