The beauty of a live performance, you never know what might happen. Earlier this week during a preview performance of the abridged revival of West Side Story, audience members in the first 5 rows got an unexpected surprise. They all got sprayed with STAGE BLOOD!!!!! The idea came from the production's director Tony winner Ivo van Hove. In some of his past shows, he is well known for using “surprising and visceral” stage effects.

The production officially opens at the Broadway Theatre on February 20th, 2020.


What do you think of being sprayed with stage blood in the audience?!!

Isaac Powell, who plays the ill-fated Tony, later said online, “Don’t worry, it washes out and also you’re welcome!”
