Inspired by the timeless story of Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story takes Shakespeare’s starcrossed lovers, and places them in the vibrant battleground of New York City’s West Side in the 1950s. In the midst of the deep-seated rivalry between the Puerto Rican gang, the Sharks, and the white gang, the Jets, Maria and Tony discover that ancient grudges are no match for true love. Their warring factions, however, refuse to back down and resentment leads the bloody path to the lovers’ ultimate, tragic conclusion with soaring, sophisticated and diverse melodies and energetic dance battles. With classic songs such as Maria, America and Tonight, West Side Story remains one of American musical theatre’s most revolutionary and most loved treasures.
