More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it’s
back and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final
breath, West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time. This
revival, based on Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents’ Broadway
direction, remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The Bernstein
and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and
features such classics of the American musical theatre as “Something’s
Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.” As the
Associated Press says, “West Side Story remains Broadway’s best
dance-driven musical. Five decades have not dimmed the extraordinary
choreography or the score that pulsates throughout.”
