Great Expectations

Watched "West Side Story" (the musical play, not the movie adaptation) over the weekend. I don't know....maybe I expected something more magical, more stunning...but it didn't really move me the way I thought that it would.

The vocals were good, as was the dancing; however, perhaps because I couldn't really identify with the story, or maybe the accents were sometimes a bit hard to catch (I think the actors were trying a bit too hard to put on a Puerto Rican/New York accent), I just didn't feel as caught up in it as I did with other plays I've seen like Chicago or Mama Mia or Grease or even Cats!
