The world’s greatest love story takes to the streets of New York City in this landmark Broadway musical considered one of the theatre’s finest accomplishments. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet transforms into 1950s city life as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the Jets and the 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. With a memorable score and exuberant dance the poignant story still resonates today. Song classics include “Maria,” “America,” “Tonight,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Somewhere.” 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
