Stage Combat Class

“I am so grateful that Ron was brought in to take charge of all the gang fighting in WEST SIDE STORY. He gave it the look of real fighting it badly needed but did it in a way that minimized the danger of anyone getting hurt (and on their own, the boys were getting hurt much too often). Unlike most people I have seen in Ron’s position, he didn’t work as a macho machine but as the extremely agreeable, amiable and enthusiastic man he is. We’re going to have Ron come around again and again.” — Arthur Laurents, director, WEST SIDE STORY
