Coming this Summer...
From the first notes to the final breath, one of the most beloved and memorable musicals ever, West Side Story, takes the most famous love story of all time, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and sets it loose on the passionate and turbulent streets of 1950s New York.
Considered a musical theater masterpiece with a timeless message, West Side Story has energetic characters, inspiring drama, amazing dance, and light-hearted moments that appeal to all ages.
Featuring a live orchestra performing one of the most exciting scores ever written for the stage, West Side Story’s legendary music features treasured numbers like “Something’s Coming”, “Tonight”, “I Feel Pretty”, “Gee, Officer Krupke”, “Maria”, and “America”.
With a creative dream team that includes Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, this groundbreaking musical tackles themes of human dignity, prejudice, violence, and the need for compassion and forgiveness to bring about redemption and a coming together within communities.
Mark your calendars now for July 21-26, 2020. Ticket sales begin June 23.
