Leonard Bernstein's New York
Composer: Bernstein, Leonard
A new generation of American musical theater artists come together in a glorious mosaic of Leonard Bernsteinís show tunes (New York Times). Brilliantly filmed in the very New York locations celebrated by the songs - Coney Island, Central Park, Times Square - this DVD joins todayís performers with the ageless music of perhaps New Yorkís greatest musical personality.
On the Town, Wonderful Town and West Side Story chronicle the city in all its variety and excitement, and these performances bring a heightened measure of entertainment to Bernsteinís singular achievement.
"New York, New York! a helluva town!" the company sings - it was never truer than in Leonard Bernsteinís New York today.
