WEST SIDE STORY


Daniel will be joining the 2019 Australian/International tour of WEST SIDE STORY as the Tony Alternate & Moose.


West Side Story is a dazzling collaboration between 4 of the world’s greatest theatrical minds – composer Leonard Bernstein, author Arthur Laurents, lyricist Stephen Sondheim and choreographer Jerome Robbins. The original Broadway production opened in 1957, and even over 50 years later, the show still lives on as one of the most acclaimed and well-loved musicals. Director and Choreographer Joey McKneely, a two-time Tony Award-nominated choreographer, has received worldwide acclaim since his staging of the same production opened on London’s West End.


The Producers said, “We are so excited by the cast that has been assembled for this production of West Side Story. From an Australia wide search, this all-Australian company is made up of the most exciting young talent in the country. We were blown away in the audition room and can’t wait for audiences to experience this incredible production which such a talented and dynamic cast.”


West Side Story plays a strictly limited season at the Arts Centre Melbourne in April 2019, and the Sydney Opera House from August 2019.
