"One of the most important aspects of this show is the choreography and the audience isn't disappointed here either. Choreographer Victoria Casillo recreates Jerome Robbins original choreography, [and] her dancing expertise is witnessed in "Prologue", "Dance at the Gym" which stops the show, "Cool", "America" and the breathtaking ballet to "Somewhere"."
