Join another conversation of The Salisha Show with your favorite host, Salisha Thomas. Jeniffer Florentino joins me in this wonderful episode as we chat about Spielberg’s West Side Story. 

West Side Story is an American musical drama film directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins. It is a film adaptation of the 1957 Broadway musical of the same name, which tells the story of a forbidden romance between a young American street gang member from Manhattan who falls in love with a Puerto Rican girl from the “wrong side of the tracks.”
