West Side Story

In the 1950s, on the Upper West Side of New York, a star-crossed love blooms. Tony, a member of the Jets gang, falls head over heels for Maria, sister to Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks. The Jets, comprised largely of Polish-American working-class teens, have a long-standing rivalry with the Puerto Rican Sharks, leading to countless verbal threats and plenty of finger-snapping dance competitions. As Tony and Maria conspire to escape their conflict-ridden neighborhood to start a new life together, tensions between the gangs swell. Eventually a knife fight explodes between the teenagers, leaving the leaders of both gangs dead and Bernardo’s blood on Tony’s blade. While the tragic story unfolds, a score composed by Leonard Bernstein buoys lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, speaking to love and revenge in numbers such as “I Feel Pretty,” “Somewhere,” and “America.”

When it was first performed on Broadway in 1957, West Side Story was unlike any musical that had come before it. A re-imagination of Romeo and Juliet, the show offered a dark vision of gang violence, racial tension, and tragic romance, juxtaposed against Bernstein’s catchy, largely cheerful melodies.

State Theatre

The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from “the ravages of time.” Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue’s signature dome.
