Scaglione exits ‘West Side’

Amengual to step in as Maria

Josefina Scaglione departs the Broadway revival of “West Side Story” next month, to be replaced by unknown Sarah Amengual.

Argentine actress Scaglione, who was nommed for a Tony for her perf as Maria, has stuck with the musical since the show began perfs in February 2009. Like Amengual, she was a new name to Broadway when she landed the gig.

Weekly sales for “West Side Story” consistently topped the $1 million mark for a large portion of the show’s run so far, although this summer B.O. has tended to hover below $800,000. The production, which recouped its $14 million capitalization costs in about 30 weeks, has grossed close to $80 million overall during its Main Stem run, and a national tour is currently on the road.

Amengual, who recently graduated from the U. of Miami, takes over for Scaglione Sept. 21. She’ll appear opposite Matthew Hydzik, the current Tony.
