The new version of the “West Side Story” drama show “Covit-19” has fallen victim to a new side of the epidemic, which, as announced by its producers yesterday, will not return to Broadway status as previously planned.
The new version of the famous theatrical work was launched in February last year, but was forced to stop a month after the “Corona” virus outbreak in New York.
“We are very sorry to announce that West Side Story will not be returning to the stage as it will be remade on Broadway in 2020,” producer Kate Horton said in a statement.
“Re-enactment is not a viable proposal for a variety of reasons,” he added, adding, “Thanks to the“ remarkable and creative artists ”on the production team who revived the story on Broadway, even for a very short time.
The work is signed by Belgian director Ivo von Hoof, who introduced the unprecedented transformation of music produced in 1957, with very different actors and themes that reflect the current reality.
The outbreak was not the only obstacle to the show, as original producer Scott Rudd’s backed out of support for Kate Horton after allegations of workplace harassment.
One of the key actors, Amar Ramsar, has faced allegations of misconduct during his years with the New York ballet.
Broadway Theaters, which is set to reopen next September, has announced that it will vaccinate the public and members of all theater productions against “Covit-19”.
This work bears the signature of Belgian Director Ivo van Hoof.
