One of the greatest love stories of all time takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Star-crossed young lovers Tony and Maria find themselves caught in a turf war between rival gangs – the Puerto Rican Sharks and the American Jets – as they dream of being together in a world without prejudice in New York City’s derelict Upper West Side during the turbulent 1950s.

West Side Story features breathtaking choreography, charismatic characters, and a sweeping score including memorable songs like “Maria,” “I Feel Pretty,” “Somewhere,” “Tonight,” “America,” and more.

From the first note to the final breath, this epic tale of dueling street gangs, howling police sirens, and forbidden love is as powerful, poignant, and timely as ever. Don’t miss it.
