West Side Story: Officer Krupke speaks!
Ahead of our production of Bernstein’s classic musical West Side Story, we caught up with Martin Carroll, who plays Officer Krupke.
Tell us about your rehearsal experience this week “Something coming, something (very) good! By Saturday afternoon I had completed my first week back with the WSS Company. Hardly seems possible that we all first gathered for the Meet n’ Greet in London, at the Kobi Nazrul Centre on May 14th!
In the weeks between, the cast & creative team had worked extremely hard & my first impression as I walked in on Tues afternoon was ‘Wow!’ – this is something special in the making. By the end of Saturday’s first complete ‘stagger thru’, I hadn’t changed my mind.
On the contrary, my first instinct was to post on Facebook, that of the almost one hundred productions that I’ve had the good fortune to work on, over the past 37 years (OMG!), this company stands out as one of the most talented and friendly which emanates from the top all the way through!”
