West Side Story is so old

I read that Spielberg is basing his movie closely with the Broadway version and not the movie.  Bernstein was not happy with the movie orchestration.

My hope is that Spielberg creates an amazing experience. There are at least two generations that have largely never seen the original. If it’s awesome and true to the story, it will succeed. The commitment to every single aspect of the film, or the show, will almost certainly fail. You cannot successfully reproduce the original of anything.


War of the Worlds succeeded to be true to the original while creating a relatively new story line that made for a great movie.
