Widely regarded as one of the best scores ever written, West Side Story takes the world’s greatest love story to the streets of New York City. From the first notes to the final breath, it remains a timely and moving story of love, and the importance of understanding and compassion. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to 1950’s New York City, as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican 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.
