"West Side Story" at Artis–Naples December 26, 2013

Suki Lopez (Anita) leads the Shark Girls in "America," the night's best number. A rousing love letter to the advantages of her new homeland, Lopez lifts her skirts, stomps her feet and sings as a homesick friend tries to talk up Puerto Rico. A throbbing beat, frenetic movement and fiery female moves gives the show its most powerful scene - and message. In the tragedy of "West Side Story" there is a lesson: let go of the past and move toward America's melting pot future. This modern production falters when it strays beyond music and dance. An 85-minute first half feels every minute (and more) as the story lumbers from street to bar to school to bedroom. No matter the soaring vocals (Kevin Hack and Gabriela Albo delight as star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria in "Tonight"), the show never manages to generate (or carry) momentum from scene to scene.

Benjiman Dallas Redding brings menace and a vibrant quality to Jets tough guy Riff; look for a handful of standouts in the gang. Michael Spencer Smith makes for a hard-edged Bernardo, brimming with passion. His flashy dance with Lopez's Anita is a highlight.The Shark Girls, an often-underrated part of the ensemble, make the delightful "I Feel Pretty" shine."
