    WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

    Forgive me for not riding the hype, but i just watched WSS for the first time, and i have to say it is one of the most over rated musicals ever. Sure, the story is great, but let's hand that over to Shakespeare. Yes, the dancing is great, probably the highlight of ths movie.... The thing is, the 'synergy' of the movie just doesn't come across! The ethnicity of the Puerto Ricans is really Americanised and it effects the over all meaning of the musical! Another aspect I found dissapointing was that i felt no sense of sorrow when the main characters died!! Bad production? It's around two and a half hours long, yet in this enormous amount of time, yet the character development remained really sparse! Maybe I need to see it again? Maybe sixteen year olds arent meant to judge musicals from the 60's? Either way...i was just dissapointed! I'll finish in asking the question that bugged me the moment the movie finished..... why does maria live?? Juliet doesn't live! This reeeaallly affects the story in a BAD way... then again, if she died, i don't think i'd feel the emotion i did when Juliet died, anyway.
