Westchester Broadway Theatre presents WEST SIDE STORY, based on a concept by Jerome Robbins with book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, directed and choreographed by Barry McNabb and musical direction by Ryan Edward Wise.

West Side Story, possibly the greatest musical ever created, was inspired by Shakespeare''s Romeo and Juliet. The Musical is set on the mean streets of Manhattan, in the upper west side neighborhood of San Juan Hill, during the turbulent fifties. West Side Story tells the tale of two star-crossed lovers from different worlds. When Tony, a Jet, falls for Maria, a Shark, all hell breaks loose. Caught between two warring street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, Tony and Maria attempt to create a life together. The dark theme, sophisticated music, extended dance scenes, and focus on social problems marked a turning point in American musical theater.

Bernstein's score for the musical includes "Something's Coming", "Maria", "America", "Somewhere", "Tonight", "Jet Song", "I Feel Pretty", "A Boy Like That", "One Hand, One Heart", "Gee, Officer Krupke", and "Cool".
