Ansel Elgort took his long-time girlfriend, Violetta Komyshan, to the West Side Story premiere at the Rose Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City.


West Side Story, based on the musical written by Stephen Sondheim, who died last week, was originally supposed to be released in December 2020, but due to the pandemic, will be released this December instead. Elgort, who has been recently absent from social media, has returned to Instagram to promote the new movie. The actor recently posted a picture of the cast with the caption: “Last night at the premiere of West Side Story!!! I couldn’t be more proud to be standing alongside these extraordinary people. Can’t wait for you all to see this movie!!!! ”

West Side Story, a classic musical, follows a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. The characters are involved in New York street gangs on the harsh streets of the Upper West Side. The two gangs battle for control of the turf, however, the situation becomes complicated when a gang member falls in love with a rival’s sister.

The movie stars Elgort, Rachel Zegler, Maddie Ziegler and Rita Moreno — all well-known figures in the musical world. Moreno starred in the original film.

The movie will be released to theaters on December 10, and though unplanned, will be the 60th anniversary of the 1961 film’s release.
