West Side Story

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is often considered Broadway's finest, its songs a part of the nation's musical heritage. With such memorable songs as “America,” “Tonight,” “I Feel Pretty,” and of course, “Somewhere,” Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs: the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican immigrant Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence, and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching, and relevant musical dramas of our time.
