A message to Ivo Von Hove: Hey Ivo, ignore the fact you don't know me and listen. I know you're directing a revival of West Side Story for Broadway and you might want new choreography instead of the original choreography by Jerome Robbins. If so, Justin Peck would be great to create something new. If he made completely different choreography Carousel he can do it for a very famous dance show.
The main dance style of Carousel is ballet and is also a Rodgers and Hammerstein show. Oklahoma is also a Rodgers and Hammerstein show and features the dream ballet.
Imagine if Justin Peck did the dream ballet. Just imagine it...
I rest my case.
The songs from this show have (mostly) got a faster tempo than Carousel and also include jazz and tap dance which isn't Peck's speciality. But, I have full faith he can make something incredibly new to this show and expand his dancing range to make this show S'Wonderful!
The Billy Joel musical is perfect for Peck. It's mostly a ballet show which is what he has done for most of his life, the songs are fastly paced and the stage will be clear. The amount of potential he has in making this show is staggering and it would just be nice to have a revival of Movin' Out since it's a great show!
This show should be on Broadway regardless of if Peck does this show or not but damn if he does this I will be there on opening night! I want him to do The Lambeth Walk! please?
