About WEST SIDE STORY
With groundbreaking choreography by the legendary Jerome Robbins, book by Arthur Laurents, an unforgettable score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, WEST SIDE STORY changed Broadway dance and the face of musical theatre forever. While Manhattan’s west side rumbles with the clash of the Jets and Sharks, star-crossed lovers Maria and Tony seek a “somewhere” their romance can thrive. Based on one of the greatest love stories of all time – Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet – WEST SIDE STORY is powerful and poignant, and its electrifying Latin and jazz-infused score including “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere” completes the masterpiece. The production will be directed and choreographed by Tony nominee Joey McKneely, who will reproduce and freshly reinterpret Jerome Robbins’ stunning original choreography.
