West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Set to evocative and powerful music by Leonard Bernstein, with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, the show features iconic choreography. 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 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.
