Theatre Photography Dudley
Another week, another fabulous theatre production to go and photograph – I do love this job sometimes
This time, we venture over to Dudley for some of the final rehearsals for TAB’s upcoming production of one of my all time favourite musicals “West Side Story” by composer Leonard Bernstein.
This classic and timeless musical, adapted from Romeo and Juliet tells the tale of the star crossed lovers, set against the backdrop of two rival New York City gangs – the Jets and the Sharks.
A busy evening as the choreographer was in full swing putting the final touches to the epic scene “the dance at the gym” where we see Tony and Maria meet each other for the first time
After an hour on that, we get into one of my favourite numbers and probably one of the shows classics “America”
For us, its an evening of headshots for the program of everybody in their branded West Side Story tops and a set of rehearsal shots
Also add in a couple of promo shots of the two leads and away we go for the evening
This show comes to Stourbridge town hall the first week of march and tickets are absolutely flying out of the door at the moment.
Looking forward to being at the dress rehearsal for this one, cant wait to see the whole production after last night sneak peak.
Interesting as well the timing of this production with the recent announcements of a re-make of the big screen version by Steven Spielberg – cant wait for that one either……tampering with a classic ?? or a chance to bring a classic dated film now to a whole new audience ?? we’ll see.
