Fresh on the heels of performing 'Carmina Burana,' which inspired one of the drollest entries yet in Midweek Madness, if Midweek Madness does say so itself, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is about to play a live soundtrack for screenings of the 1961 film 'West Side Story.' So, naturally, that got Midweek Madness thinking about Sharks, Jets, Maria, Tony, feeling pretty -- and "Somewhere" to find a "Cool" way of having fun with all of it. (Yes, this video gets ever so sophomoric in places, but MM is willing to overlook the questionable bits, given the clever stuff in between.)
