A charged clash of cultures on the mean streets of 1950s Manhattan is the setting for this startlingly relevant and timely retelling of the story of Romeo and Juliet. With a score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim and original choreography by Jerome Robbins, West Side Story changed the landscape of the American musical. In the ultimate modern urban romance, star-crossed lovers struggle for the freedom to love whom they choose in this classic filled with passion, humor, rivalry, and heartbreaking tenderness.
