'Could it be? Yes, it could. Something’s coming – something good.'
WEST SIDE STORY marries stunning choreography to a matchless songbook – Maria, America, Somewhere, Tonight – as it translates ROMEO AND JULIET to 1950s Manhattan. It’s the Jets and the Sharks, two rival gangs who make New York’s mean streets even meaner. But it’s also passionate, tender and deeply romantic – the greatest love story ever told.
Reimagined for the round with new choreography by Aletta Collins (SWEET CHARITY) and orchestrations from Bernstein specialist Jason Carr, Sarah Frankcom’s production follows Royal Exchange hits such as SWEET CHARITY and GUYS AND DOLLS as it brings a whole new energy to a bona fide Broadway classic.
Based on a conception of JEROME ROBBINS.
