"A highlight was the excellent performance of 'What I Did for Love' performed by Maria Cristina Slye who played Diana. One of the dancers named Paul falls and injures his leg and is forced to leave the auditions. Zach, the director, played by James Ludwig, asks the remaining dancers what they will do if they are not selected for this performance or if they can no longer dance. The consensus is they will never have regrets for choosing this lifestyle. At this moment, Maria Cristina Slye performs the show stopper and does a great job with it. Performing 'What I Did For Love' as compared to the original is no easy task but Slye pulls it off. Maria Cristina Slye gave a strong performance as the feisty Diana throughout the entire show."

"A big part of the charm of the high-energy production at the John W. Engeman Theater at Northport is that its youthful cast members seem to be expressing their own joys and tribulations through the songs they sing, as a chorus and individually...Thanks to Drew Humphrey’s sharp direction and Dena DiGiacinto’s snappy choreography, the stories and emotions that unfold — some of them more than a little sentimental — carry an urgency similar to the original’s. Scott Wojcik and Gayle Seay did an excellent job casting the show with spunky performers, many of them just starting their careers."

"But Maria Cristina Slye quickly emerges as “West Side Story’s” hidden gem as Anita, girlfriend to Bernardo and counselor to Maria, as she defines the raw “ganas”— desire — central to the immigrant experience in the showstopping “America.”
