Drury Lane Theatre, 100 Drury Lane, is kicking off the New Year with WEST SIDE STORY, the revolutionary Tony Award-winning production that forever changed American musical theater. Experience the passion, drama and heart-pounding excitement of WEST SIDE STORY like never before. The production is currently in previews and opens January 22, running through March 22. BroadwayWorld has footage of the company performing "Something's Coming," "America," and "Mambo" below!

Multi-Jeff Award winner Rachel Rockwell (LES MISERABLES, Ragtime, The Sound of Music, Sweeney Todd, and Oliver! at Drury Lane Theatre) directs, and Rhett Guter (who starred in the International Tour of WEST SIDE STORY and Choreographed Anything Goes at The Utah Shakespeare Festival) serves as Choreographer and Associate Director and stars as "Riff."

WEST SIDE STORY features a dynamic cast led by Christina Nieves as "Maria" (LES MISERABLES at Drury Lane Theatre, A Midsummer Night's Dream at Chicago Shakespeare Theater and The Sins of Sor Juana at Goodman Theatre), Jim DeSelm as "Tony" (Godspell at Theatre at the Center and South Pacific at Marriott Theatre), and Michelle Aravena as "Anita" (Rocky, A Chorus Line, and Jersey Boys on Broadway and the National Tour of West Side Story).

A modern retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet set on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in the 1950s, WEST SIDE STORY is the poignant tale of Tony and Maria, star-crossed young lovers caught in a turf war between rival gangs. The musical has an electrifying Latin and Jazz-infused score including "Somewhere," "Tonight," "I Feel Pretty," and "America."
