Ivo van Hove’s reimagined West Side Story has revealed changes and cuts from the original production. The “Somewhere” ballet and the iconic “I Feel Pretty” are gone. The show now runs one act, with no intermission. Also the film version of “America” rather than the original is being inserted. Expect video to complete the changes.
