‘Cher’-ing West Side Story 2


I like her as George Chakiris. Others prefer her as Rita Moreno. (Hey, different strokes for different folks.) She also plays Russ Tamblyn and Natalie Wood.

In this gender-bending, cross-dressing, stage-hogging, scene-stealing, performance-arting, one-woman show-ing, television tour-de-force, Cher does it all. Never a shrinking violet, she bursts forth as Tony/Maria/Bernardo/Anita in a West Side Story one-stop-shopping trip.

Best “A Boy Like That” ever!

With respects to Irene Sharaff, costume designer of West Side Story.

    I love Cher doing Westside Story. I heard that some idiot said she couldn’t act. What nonsense.

    Thank you for printing the article in defense of Michael Jackson. It certainly wasn’t a good idea to let children stay with him for overnights or for lengthy periods of time. The parents who permitted their children to do so were not responsible parents.

    I don’t know what to think about Michael but I hope other friends of Micheal will speak out to defend him.
