West Side Story


Show Synopsis

WEST SIDE STORY is one of musical theatre’s finest accomplishments. The story is set in the Upper West Side of New York City in the mid-1950’s, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is heart-wrenching and takes the audience on a journey of self discovery. Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful as ever and the score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written.
Content Advisory: Please be aware mature and adult topics are portrayed in the musical – the show may not be suitable for young children.

Run time is two and a half hours including one intermission.
