Post Biliungal West Side Story
According to the GIANT article in the newspaper yesterday, Laurents is making the 2008 revival biliungal. The Puerto Ricans, rather than speaking with an accent, will speak in spanish, with subtitles for the audience.

And Maria will definately be dark. Laurents was admandantly against using dark foundation.

What are your thoughts on this idea?

Did they have subtitles in Millie?
Because I saw a high school production and they had subtitles.
They just put a screen above the stage and they had the words run across while the asian guys talked...I dunno......

I would imagine that the subtitles would work like that of an opera.
