Created by Arthur Laurents, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim and Jerome Robbins, West Side Story premiè red on Broadway in 6957 and has gone on to become one of the most beloved and revered American musicals of all time.
Taylor throws modesty to the wind when he says, it's a dream to be the leading man in West Side Story and Tony is the central male character. It's such a thrill, plus he's easier for me to connect with because he is so open and ready for something new and great to happen and that's what I hope will happen for me when I go to Toronto to study at Randolph Academy.
"It's a love letter to Puerto Rico," Miranda told CNN of the unnamed song. "I had the idea at 8 in the morning … The initial demo was me singing in a bathroom." We can only assume that the final version will be a bit more polished, particularly as it will feature a number of other celebrity artists (and we’re not exactly sure how many people Miranda can fit in his bathroom).

It's a strong moment, and Ned Glass' Doc is one of the most authentic characters in the film, but really: Has a racist ever walked into a movie and been converted by a line of dialogue? Isn't this movie preaching to the choir?
