Celebrate Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday with a production whose
heartbreaking themes, brilliant music and vibrant characters forever changed American
musical theatre. “West Side Story” transports Shakespeare’s tragic “Romeo and Juliet”
to the streets of 1950s New York, where two star-crossed lovers on opposite sides of a
bitter gang rivalry fight to keep their relationship alive. Sixty years after its premiere,
this visceral tale about the immigrant struggle to find a place in American society still
resonates. [Organizer's description]
