West Side Story - Road

West Side Story - National Tour - 1957


  The Lighting Archive wishes to thank the Wisconsin Historical Society.
            Their records show that Jean Rosenthal started giving her papers to them in 1963.
            She then asked to have the papers for the original Broadway version of West Side Story returned to her in 1969.  She passed away in that year.
            Her associates, the lighting designer Nananne Porcher and Mickey Kinsella must have used that paperwork in the revival on B'way in 1980.
            We are still hoping to find the paperwork.
            note to the curious:  There is no light plot so far. However by reading the details of the documents a light plot can be inferred without knowing the exact spacial details.
