More than fifty years ago, one musical changed theater forever. Now it’s back and mesmerizing audiences all over again. West Side Story is an iconic recreation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Set in New York City in the mid-1950s amidst widespread racial and social tensions, West Side Story is a tale of enduring love. Tony is a Jet ready to leave the gang life behind. Maria is the sister of Sharks leader, Bernardo. When Tony and Maria unexpectedly meet and fall for each other, the tension that has been building between the rival gangs explodes. Directed by David Saint with the help of Tony Award-winning Arthur Laurents’ Broadway direction, West Side Story remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever.
