West Side Story

Music by Leonard Bernstein
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Arthur Laurents

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to 20th century 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.  West Side Story — this classic of the American theatre — is not one to be missed.

Rated: PG, for intense drama.
