Mine would have to be the "Quintet" scene when every character is singing at the same time, showing their own personal emotions. It's a fantastic scene and works very well, all of their personalities being showcased in song at the same time. Very powerful and beautiful! =D>

I also like "A Boy Like That"/"I Have Love". Anita is singing at almost the lowest of the Alto part and Maria is singing at about the highest of the soprano range. It's an amazing contrast.

That's my favorite part too!

I also like "A Boy Like That/I Have A Love", "The Rumble", "Somewhere" and "Dance At The Gym." "Somewhere" is just so haunting and beautiful.

"The Rumble" is my second favorite scene! The choreography is mind-blowing!

My personal favorite is Gee, Officer Krupke. Only because I was Action, though.

I also like the Tonight quintet. Click here to see my production's quintet.

My favorite sequence is the Quintet, but my favorite song is Somewhere.
I also really like Tonight, Boy Like That/I Have a Love, and America.

My favorites are 'Somewhere" and "The Dance at the Gym". I also love both tonights. The whole musical is flawless; these are just my absolute favorites.

Somewhere makes me cry every time I hear it. My favorite dancing sequence is in the mambo, cuz that's when Riff and his girl try to out dance Nardo and Anita. And there's some great, intense partnering stuff that can happen there. That's usually when the big money lifts and the multiple pirouettes come out!
