West Side Story, the enduring hit musical with book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and direction by Jerome Robbins stormed into the city last night where it will rumble at The Toronto Centre for the Arts for the next four weeks. The critically acclaimed production debuted on Broadway in 2009, featuring Spanish lyrics and dialogue new to the show. The First National Tour has been traveling the United States for the past year, and Toronto audiences have just over a month to check out this lavish production.
BWW was on hand for the opening night, and we are thrilled to bring our readers these exclusive photos from the show.

Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and since then has been lucky enough to be involved in various theatre activities and productions, including a regional production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and a local production of Where the Sidewalk Ends. She has also received training from various teachers throughout Southwestern Ontario in both piano and voice, and competed in vocal competitions for which she received a few awards. Her writing career started almost by accident, when she had the opportunity to become a ghostwriter for up and coming businesses. She continues to do this, writing the content for all sorts of companies who are starting websites and looking to find their voice. |
Her passion and love for theatre led to her becoming involved with BroadwayWorld where she is thrilled to be writing for the Toronto contingent of the rapidly growing website. When she isn't at the theatre, you can generally find her firmly planted in front of her trusty Blackberry - tweeting, Facebooking or partaking in other such social media activities to ensure that those who want to know are kept apprised of everything that Toronto theatre has to offer. Other interests include movies, art, music, shopping, fashion and martial arts with the occasional foray into the world of finance.
