Book: Arthur Laurents

Music: Leonard Bernstein

Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim


West Side Story transposes Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to the gang-ridden streets of 1950s Manhattan, dominated by the Sharks and the Jets. Two teens from the bitter-enemy gangs meet and fall in love at a fateful gym dance.


This was a return engagement of the original production of West Side Story.
