"West Side" wikilink and surrounding wording[edit]

There've been a few edits in the lede around the linking of "west side" and surrounding text:

I don't have any particular dog in this fight; except that whatever is settled on should not link to West Side (a disambiguation page); that was my motivation to edit. TJRC (talk) 02:14, 11 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree that #2 was either vandalism or just a bad edit. If you had just reverted to the stable version, that would have been helpful. -- Ssilvers (talk) 02:20, 11 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This article isn't on my watchlist. I just noticed the error and made a correction, without plumbing into its history. Again, I'm not attached to that particular repair. TJRC (talk) 19:30, 11 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, that's one way to avoid a role you don't want[edit]

"Laurents wanted James Dean for the lead role of Tony, but the actor soon died."

Seriously, the wording there is a bit awkward; could be improved. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:57, 18 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Some possible articles about the text's treatment of Puerto Rican culture[edit]

  • "A Puerto Rican Reading of the America of West Side Story" (PDF). pp. 62–82.
  • Negron-Muntaner, Frances (Summer 2000). "restricted access Feeling Pretty: West Side Story and Puerto Rican Identity Discourses". Duke University Press. pp. 83–106.

These sources could be useful in developing the article. WhisperToMe (talk) 23:41, 10 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
