Tonight, Tonight, is Westside's Birthday
Tonight, Tonight, will be the 51st birthday for the musical Westside Story. It opened this date in 1957 at Broadway's Winter Garden Theater.*
And believe it or not, one of the musical's songs (One Heart**) was played in our wedding ceremony ten years later in 1967 (really). You should have seen me and the ushers leap over the pews while the bridesmaids shashayed towards us clicking their fingers. And then us, high stepping and clicking our fingers in unionson marching up the aisle... The people at Noonday Baptist Church are still talking about it (not really).
