Here and Gone, Beth Crandall

"As a child, Beth Crandall’s first awareness of a wish to spend a life in the theatre was when she appeared at the Weinberg Center as Baby June in “Gypsy,” a show with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and original direction by Jerome Robbins. It seems only fitting then that she made her Broadway debut in the recent revival of Sondheim’s and Robbin’s “West Side Story.” "

"With her work ethic, her triple threat gift and vigor, there’s little doubt that the dreams and life she imagines for herself will be well within her reach."

Q&A with Beth Crandall of 'West Side Story'

"Frederick native Beth Crandall is working both in front of the proscenium arch and behind it to help shape the production of "West Side Story" currently running at the Hippodrome Theater. The 26-year-old performs most nights as Zaza, one of the Jets' girlfriends. But, her impeccable technique also won her a job as the production's assistant dance captain."

"Robbins died in 1998 but his ground-breaking work from 1957 has been scrupulously ‘reproduced’ by Joey McKneely and kept close to Robbins’ exacting standards by dance captains Ryan Ghysels and Beth Crandall."

STAGE REVIEW: From this gang, a soaring 'West Side'

By Terry Byrne, Globe Correspondent | June 22, 2007

"Bergasse's re-creation of Robbins's choreography overflows with personality as well as some amazing visual images. All of the Jets have an earthy attitude, but each one is able to carve out an individual identity even as they work together as a team. Standouts include Justin Bohon as the swaggering Riff, Michael Mindlin as the cautious but eager Baby John, and Beth Crandall as the tomboy Anybodys."

"The dancing is, as it must be, at the center of this production...nothing is forced, nothing seems impossible or unreal or stretched out of human proportion. Every gesture, every extension, seems right. Stand outs include...Beth Crandall as Anybodys."
