West Side Story: Now With More English

According to publicists for Broadway's West Side Story — in which the Puerto Rican characters occasionally sing in Spanish — a number of "slight changes" have been implemented, and several songs will revert back to their original English. Probably because it's so hard to find bilingual substitute actors. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
