A Place for Us - A Tribute to 50 Years of West Side Story
Composer: Bernstein, Leonard
Lyricist: Sondheim, Stephen
The songs of West Side Story have taken on a life of their own outside the riveting context of the musical that introduced them 50 years ago.
Leonard Bernstein's music and Stephen Sondheim's lyrics have fired the imagination of an incredible array of singers and instrumentalists, who have responded with faithful cover versions and with radical reinterpretations that have intensified the popular appeal of these songs.
