Leonard Bernstein’s enduring musical brings “Romeo and Juliet” to the streets of 1950s New York.
Based on a conception of Jerome Robbins, book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Celebrate Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday with a production whose heartbreaking themes, brilliant music and vibrant characters forever changed American musical theatre. “West Side Story” transports Shakespeare’s tragic “Romeo and Juliet” to the streets of 1950s New York, where two star-crossed lovers on opposite sides of a bitter gang rivalry fight to keep their relationship alive. Sixty years after its premiere, this visceral tale about the immigrant struggle to find a place in American society still resonates.
West Side Story is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
