Yesterday, there was a place for us to see Stephen Spielberg’s West Side Story, with Leonard Bernstein’s incredible music and a young Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics, including “There’s a place for us.”
There’s a place for us to share the beautiful song “Somewhere” (and that place is here).
The place where the PPAS choir is singing “Somewhere” in that video is New York’s Lincoln Center, a place whose construction is displacing the characters in Spielberg and Tony Kushner’s version of West Side Story.
There’s a place for me to write that I loved the movie, except for (SPOILER ALERT!*) the decision to take “there’s a place for us” and Somewhere away from the young lovers Maria and Tony.
There’s a place for this excerpt from Tasha Robinson’s West Side Story review:
There’s a place for us to see all my images for today.
There’s a place for us to celebrate those National Days, or anything else we choose to observe every day. There’s a place for us to find out what National Ding-a-Ling Day is, and that place is here.
Also, there’s a place for our cats, and that seems to be wherever they want.
There’s a place for you to leave a comment about this blog post, below.
There’s always a place for us to express gratitude to all those we appreciate, including YOU.
* Here’s the place for me to share that I’ve been meaning to get back to songwriting and there’s a place somewhere that I’ve stored the lyrics and the tune for one of my unfinished pieces, “SPOILER ALERT!”
