West Side Story takes the most famous romantic drama of all time, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, and sets it loose in epic fashion on the streets of circa 1950s New York. This Musical Theatre West production finds two idealistic young lovers caught between warring street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. The famed film adaptation won 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and the story has enjoyed many Broadway revivals, as recently as 2009. Written by the dream creative team of Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim, West Side Story's legendary jazz, Latin and classical-inspired score features the treasured songs "Something's Coming," "Tonight," "I Feel Pretty" and "America." Take your seat at Carpenter Performing Arts Center for a peek onto the mean streets of NYC and watch the story play out.
