Steven Spielberg’s 2021 movie version of the classic 1957 Broadway musical (and 1595 Elizabethan drama), West Side Story will be opening in theaters only on December 10th.
The legendary Stephen Sondheim, who wrote the lyrics to the original musical, said about the film on IndieWire, “It’s really terrific….the whole thing has real sparkle to it and real energy, and it feels fresh. It’s really first-grade.”
