Dancers Over 40 table.
This year was a special treat as they are celebrating the publication of "Our Story: Jets and Sharks Then and Now" by some of the original stage and movie cast members of West Side Story. I scored an autographed copy from three Jets - Bert Michaels ("Snowboy"), Harvey Evans ("Mouthpiece"), David Bean ("Tiger") and one Shark - Eddie Verso ("Juano"). The book is a memoir of the actor dancers who played the gang members in the movie of West Story (and some of whom played them in the Broadway cast as well).
I was just talking to my sister about making sure that my nephew Cody sees West Side Story. His high school band, in which he plays trumpet, is playing a West Side Story suite for their marching competition. I'm so excited for him to learn about this magical movie and score.
