Endlich wieder da! Die »furiose Inszenierung von Barrie Kosky gibt Bernsteins alter
West Side Story ihre Härte und Sprengkraft zurück« [Berliner Zeitung]. Nicht zuletzt Otto Pichlers »wirklich heutige Choreographie: roh, ungeschliffen, viril, testosteronhaltig« [Berliner Morgenpost] sorgte neben Bernsteins einmaliger Musik unter der Leitung von Koen Schoots in den vergangenen Spielzeiten für stets ausverkaufte Vorstellungen. Ein verstörend aktuelles und gleichzeitig tief berührendes Musical, das mit aller Macht Toleranz fordert und das Recht auf die große, alle Grenzen sprengende Liebe! »Unhappy End, tosender Premierenapplaus.« [Der Tagesspiegel]
