**ABOUT THE MUSICAL**

"West Side Story," with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, is a retelling of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," set in the harsh backdrop of gang rivalry. The poignant story of Tony and Maria's star-crossed love amidst the conflict between the Jets and the Sharks remains as powerful and relevant today as it was at its Broadway debut.
