Spielberg & Kushner Re-doing “West Side”

I’m interested in anything created by Steven Spielberg or Tony Kushner, so I’ll reserve judgment about their in-process re-do of “West Side Story.” Don’t worry: Lenny’s songs will be there. Kushner is re-jigging the Arthur Laurents’ book. (Thank God Arthur isn’t alive to inflict Tony with notes.) Don’t forget: Lin-Manuel Miranda did Spanish lyrics for some of the songs of “West Side Story” for the Broadway production that Laurents staged before he croaked. Why not incorporate those lyrics?
