I wonder if he would do the version that had Spanish-language songs from a couple of years ago.
Was one of them I Feel Pretty? Because boy, that song bugs me for Maria, pretty much just off the boat, to be singing.
According to the track listing on Amazon, yes: Me Siento Hermosa. The Spanish lyrics and dialog were written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, of In the Heights and NPH's Tony Award raps.And Sondheim completely agrees with you. He cringes at the words he put into Maria's mouth.
WHOA, Miranda did them? Buying it right now!
That, I don't disagree with; it's some of the word choices I find questionable.
I saw the production. It was very interesting to ahve more of Maria's dialogue and singing be in Spanish - obviously, it helped that I (and presumably most of the audience) was very familiar with the source material. But it did bring a major added dimension to the show. and Karen Olivo was brilliant as Anita, so the soundtrack is worth it for that.
