Doesn't annoy me *that* much...

Laurents may be directing his own West Side Story. He says:
There was a revival in the 1970s that was no good. It was too white-bread. I've come up with a way of doing it that will make it absolutely contemporary without changing a word or a note. And what will annoy you is that I'm not going to tell you what it is.
I'm not particularly losing sleep over it.

Unless that way of making it contemporary is a shitty reality show called "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria, I've Just Met A Girl Named Maria".

Seriously, do we really think Arthur Laurents has any idea today what "contemporary" is?

All I can say is God help him if Maria walks onstage in a tube top and mini skirt.
