Why See West Side Story?
New York City's Greatest Love Story Comes To California
This summer the sizzling streets of 1950s New York come to California, and with them the mounting tensions of artfully danced street warfare and arresting Rome-and-Juliet-esque romance of one of the greatest musicals ever to grace Broadway. With a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, West Side Story's angular melodies, thrilling plot and explosive sneaker ballet numbers live on thanks to a brand new local revival at the Fred Kavli Theater, presented by 5-Star Theatricals.
Like the Montagues and the Capulets, rival Big Apple gangs the Sharks and the Jets are divided by prejudice and hate. When two young affiliates of each gang, Maria and Tony, meet and fall in love, it inflames the opposing group's warfare. Determined not to let anything get in the way of their destiny together, the lovers meet in secret and plan to run away together, but after a rumble-under-the-highway goes awry tragedy strikes and fate takes a vastly different turn.
Opening night: 26 July 2019
