Why See West Side Story?


Experience The Musical Theatre Classic

Don't miss this local production of this iconic musical

In 1957, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, and Jerome Robbins solidified their musical theatre legend status when the dazzling West Side Story leaped onto Broadway. Fusing mounting tensions of artfully danced street warfare and an arresting Rome-and-Juliet-esque romance, the all-singing, all-dancing spectacular went on to become one of the greatest musicals ever to grace the Great White Way and the world over.

Called a 'sneaker ballet' thanks to the original sneaker-and-jeans-clad cast, a creative decision used to illicit the gritty realism of New York, West Side Story chronicles the warfare between two rival gangs - the Sharks (white Americans) and the Jets (Puerto Rican Americans). When two young associates of each gang meet and fall in love, they inflame the tensions to boiling point. Battling bloodshed and condemnation, the young lovers are determined to be together, although tragedy waits around every street corner.
