WEST SIDE STORY - NATIONAL TOUR


Caroline Sposto at BroadwayWorld.com


         “Of the cast, the vocal range of Jarrad Green as Tony is impressive, from tenor to below. Green, refreshingly, has a boyish and vulnerable quality that is often lacking when it comes to casting Tony. When he sings of the joy of finding his love in "Maria," we believe him - and cheer him on.”

          “Leading the way is Jarrad Biron Green as Jets leader Tony.  Green’s voice is crisp, clear and his renditions of “Something’s Coming” and “Maria” were simply spectacular.  Still pursuing his bachelors in music at New York University’s Steinhardt, Green will be one to watch.”

          “Jarrad Biron Green did an amazing job as Tony, with the kind of voice that makes an audience sigh, laugh, and cry as one being. At one point, as he sung his way off the stage, all the heads in front of me actually tilted and shifted ever so slightly to the side, as though they were trying to follow that voice wherever it may go.”

– Teresa Stenmark at Vancouver Weekly


          “As written, Tony is such a dweeb that the character is one of the most difficult roles in musical theatre. In this mounting, Jarrad Biron Green makes him downright hot. Green is handsome, he can float Tony’s high notes, of which there are many, and, impressively, he makes Tony an impetuously compelling and movingly openhearted young lover. (All of this from a guy who hasn’t completed his B.M. at NYU.)”

          “Jarrad Biron Green makes an ideal Tony. He has a strong presence, a gorgeous voice and conveys just enough innocence to make the tough guy believable as a romantic fool. From his first notes of “Something’s Coming,” you know he has the chops to pull the character off…Green’s chemistry with Mary Joanna Grisso’s Maria is palpable and it’s easy to believe these two could fall in love so quickly. The pair is exceptional in duets such as “Tonight” and “One Hand One Heart.”

        “You see the attraction between Green and Grisso. It’s palpable. In a way that is necessary, you see Romeo and Juliet, Tony and Maria, fall in love… Green’s acting takes on an ingenuous grace. Tony turns from a strong gang leader and nascent adult having his first serious thoughts about maturity, to a man, or actually, a boy in love. Green shows Tony’s inexperience in being in love… Green’s Tony isn’t the cock of the walk some actors play him to be. He does not have Bernardo’s suave confidence. The lack of finesse with which Green endows Tony, combined with the magnetic force that drives him to Maria and allows him to think of nothing or no one else sets the right tone of youthful ardor for the production… the genuineness Green and Grisso convey galvanizes [the] show and sets this “West Side Story” on [its] way to being a bona fide tragedy in which the audience cares so much about Maria and Tony, there is no way of watching the star-crossed course of their love without being moved.”
