West Side Story Ticket Contest
A new production of West Side Story will be staged at the Music Hall in Kansas City April 5-10. What's this have to do with jazz? Well, in addition to Leonard Bernstein's jazz-influenced score, Dave Brubeck, Stan Kenton and Oscar Peterson are among the artists who have released albums dedicated to the musical's songs.
A pair of tickets to the production's opening night performance on April 5, courtesy of the Theater League, will be awarded to a lucky Plastic Sax reader. The first person to name my favorite song from West Side Story in the comment section of this post will win the tickets. Only one guess per comment, please. I recommend identifying yourself to avoid any potential hijinks. I've previously shared my favorite song with my contact at the Theater League.
Non-winners are encouraged to use the code word SALSA to purchase West Side Story tickets at a 20% discount at Ticketmaster.
And before you smart alecks get cute, the correct response isn't "I Feel Pretty". (That's my second-favorite West Side Story song.)
