LYRIC PREMIERE & NEW COPRODUCTION
WEST SIDE STORY

LEONARD BERNSTEIN’S MUSIC AND STEPHEN SONDHEIM’S LYRICS TRANSPLANT ROMEO AND JULIET TO THE BACKSTREETS OF NEW YORK, GIVING US THIS BROADWAY MUSICAL MASTERPIECE.


Tony and Maria are two wide-eyed teenagers from opposing gangs who fall in love. As their friends and family battle with one another, Tony and Maria long for “a place for us…somewhere.” Their songs illuminate every scene and permeate our culture, from the romance of “Maria” and “Tonight” to the exuberance of “America” and the humor of “Gee, Officer Krupke.” Add to that the bold, sexy, iconic dances of Jerome Robbins that smolder and sizzle with energy, and you have a musical-theater experience you’ll never forget.
