Mckinley High School starts tryouts begin next week for "West Side Story" in the Episode,"I am a Unicorn" Tony is the male lead role. Tony is a co leader of a tough Puerto Rican street gang in New York called the "Jets". He meets Maria at a dance and it is love a first sight. Maria is the sister of Bernardo who is leader of the rival gang, "The Sharks" So this starts the story of star crossed lovers through song!
West Side Story as won many awards and many nominations. So I think it is a wonderful choice for a high school musical and I am sure that "Glee" will have their own twist to that number! But who should play the coveted role as Tony . Again there are many wonderful choices.
Finn would be wonderful because he sings so well and has a wonderful stage presence. If Rachel gets the part as Maria we have seen their magic on stage together!
Blaine has the dark looks and that beautiful hair that would make any girl swoon. I can see him with Santana. He is dynamic and commands the stage.
Puck could certainly play the bad boy Jet co-leader. He is so sexy and can sing too! I can see him with Santana , Quinn, Tina, or Mercedes!!
Kurt will have to show that he can really act if he takes on the role of Tony. His singing ability we already know is outstanding!
Artie could do a modified version of Tony. He does everything else from that wheelchair! He heart is in everything he does ! I think he would make a very romantic Tony and would be great with Mercedes!! Watch the video to see what "The Jets" are all about!
Who do you think should win the role of "Tony"?
