Backstage at West Side Story on Broadway

Earlier this month, my pops and I had the opportunity to see West Side Story on Broadway and received a private backstage tour of the Palace Theater from the lovely Pam Otterson, who plays Graziella.

Both of us being lifelong musical theatre fans, it was a huge treat to catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how the magic is made.

I suppose seeing the "reality" behind the production could have lessened our enchantment but it didn't at all.

Experiencing the complexities first hand, of how many people it takes to orchestrate a performance and the way in which the actors treat the theater like their office, only added to our wonderment.

Broadway will always hold a special place in my heart. And so will the memory of that afternoon with my dad.
