Summary
West Side Story transposes William Shakespeare's tragedy Romeo and Juliet to the gang-ridden streets of 1950s Manhattan. Instead of warring families, there are warring Jets and Sharks. Instead of Romeo and Juliet, we have Tony and Maria, two teenagers who are torn between ethnic loyalty and their intense love for each other. The amazing score includes "Tonight," "Somewhere," and "Something's Coming."

Age
Recommended for children of 13 years of age and older.

Our Recommendation
This exciting new production of the Broadway classic features an energetic young cast and faithfully re-creates Jerome Robbins' iconic choreography and Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's extraordinary score. It is directed by the show's bookwriter, Arthur Laurents, who has added a bit of a twist (and authenticity) by having the Sharks speak and sometimes sing in Spanish.
