Tony Luvs Maria #Jetsrule #2012

My son is in the stage crew for his high school's production of "West Side Story." It's a fabulous production, with a huge cast and cute Sharks and Jets and re-created a sweet brick tenement fire escape.

When the junior who plays Tony was climbing the ladder the other night (during my second viewing of the show - third and final time tonight. I think I have most of the lines memorized. I could totally step in and play one of the Sharks) I was thinking, this play still holds up after 50-plus years, but if this were 2012, our hero would NOT be going over to Maria's apartment to declare his love. He would be texting her. Maybe G-chatting. And her friends would have dissed Tony for the booty call.

So I am thinking - this story needs to be updated for 2012, told through social media.

I bring you WSS2012:
