The Official West Side Story Website

The Official West Side Story Website

I found this website while writing a dance research paper on the musical West Side Story. While I found some useful information, I found browsing on the website difficult. In addition, many of the tabs listed on the site were empty once clicked. The background, in general is harsh on the eye, and the fonts are often too small to be easily legible. As you enter the homepage, an abrupt, noisy video about the musical begins playing. As the homepage is scrolled, important information is easily overlooked as it falls below a photomontage that is poorly executed. While coming shows should be the main draw to the website for the company, its placement on the website shows it is a lower priority. As the official website for what is considered by many a timeless musical, this site is in dire need of an overhaul.
