D.J. Petrosino’s Bernardo and Courtney Arango’s Anita take center stage during the dance sequences. Whether dancing together or with other members of this excellent company, they demand our focus and we willingly give it to them.

Courtney Arango gave Anita, Bernardo’s girlfriend and Maria’s friend, depth as well as proving an especially fine singer and dancer.

Courtney Arango brought a vivaciousness and toughness to Anita, the girlfriend of Bernardo and confidante of Maria. Her rendition of "America" with the Shark girls and Megumi Nakamura as Rosalia was a hoot. In "A Boy Like That," following Bernardo's death at Tony's hand, Arango ably switched gears as Anita admonished Maria to "stick to your own kind."
