West Side Story - 2010 - US Tour Tickets, News, Info & More

Fisher Theatre
3011 W Grand Blvd # F1 Detroit, MI 48202

More than fifty years ago, a show about New York City changed musical theatre forever. Now, it's coming home to make history once again. WEST SIDE STORY returns in a groundbreaking new production directed by its legendary librettist, Tony Award� winner Arthur Laurents.

From the first notes to the final breath, WEST SIDE STORY is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Mr. Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim -- a collection of standards that includes "Tonight," "America," "Maria," "I Feel Pretty" and "Somewhere" -- is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. And the extraordinary, Tony-winning winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance. This production will offer a bold new design that builds on the show's raw power and emotion to create a fresh experience unlike any that came before it.

Don't miss this thrilling presentation of a matchless work of art.
