Musical revival set in the school-of-hard-knocks of the Upper West Side in New York City during the mid-1950s where street gangs battle for turf but don't anticipate that cross gang romance could blossom.

West Side Story on Broadway Background

The original 1957 Broadway production of West Side Story, about love within the confines of street gang warfare was a runaway success with a 2 year run and 732 performances. What is remarkable is that the NYC neighborhoods, that were featured in the Broadway show, still existed in NYC when the show officially closed on Broadway in 1959. In some irony, the neighborhoods where the show had been based were then razed to the ground in the 1970's, to make way for the Lincoln Center. The culture of violence that infected the Upper West Side of NYC during those days would be lost to the sands of time. The 1980 Broadway revival of the show saw meager interest, but the 2009 Broadway revival captured similar interest to the original production and a grabbed a handful of Tony Awards to boot as well as strong box office and critical success.

What’s West Side Story Like?

In a modern retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story is the story of a blue-collar neighborhood in the Upper West Side in 1950's NYC. The musical chronicles the rival teenage gangs from different ethnic backgrounds who battle for territory. In the classic retelling, the sister of one of the gang leaders falls in love with a member of the rival gang. The story unfolds of the two gangs, the Jets and the Sharks and the dark forces that try to keep the two lovers apart. The show has sophisticated music, extended dance scenes and a focus the social problems of the day.
