Inspired by the timeless story of Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story takes Shakespeareâ€™s star-crossed lovers, and places them in the vibrant battleground of New York Cityâ€™s West Side in the 1950s. In the midst of the deep-seated rivalry between the Puerto Rican gang, the Sharks, and the white gang, the Jets, Maria and Tony discover that ancient grudges are no match for true love. Their warring factions, however, refuse to back down, and the â€œrumblesâ€, romance, and resentment lead the bloody path to the loversâ€™ ultimate, tragic conclusion With soaring, sophisticated, and diverse melodies, energetic and athletic dance battles, and its remarkably salient social message, West Side Story remains one of American musical theatreâ€™s most revolutionary and most loved treasures.

I'd like to thank Explore Talent for sending me on an audition here in Chicago. I landed a part in "The Conspiricy Theories" which was a documentary that appeared on The History Channel.
Thanks Explore Talent and I look forward to having many, many more success stories!
