WEST SIDE STORY
More than fifty years ago, one musical changed theatre forever. Now it’s back and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, WEST SIDE STORY soars as the greatest love story of all time. This revival, based on the Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents’ Broadway direction, remains as powerful, poignant, and timely as ever. The Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Somewhere.” As an Associated Press critic writes, “WEST SIDE STORY remains Broadway’s best dance-driven musical. Five decades have not dimmed the extraordinary choreography or the score that pulsates throughout.”
WEST SIDE STORY is recommended for ages 13 and older. Please be advised that there is strong language, violence, and some sensitive subject matter that is true to the story and plot. Parental guidance is suggested.
A small portion of the lyrics and dialogue in this revival production are in Spanish. It’s not necessary to understand Spanish to comprehend the story.
