West Side Story

One of the largest theatrical events of 2019 –West Side Story is on stage in Canberra October 2019.

Hailed as the greatest Broadway musical of all time, West Side Story is the modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet; this tragic love story tells the tale of two young people whose happiness is destroyed by the hate of two enemy camps in New York City’s urban jungle. The “Jets”, sons of previous immigrants to America, battle the new arrivals from Puerto Rico, the “Sharks”, for domination of the streets.

The moment the curtain first went up on the original West Side Story on Broadway, musical theatre changed forever. Powerhouse creatives Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents, Stephen Sondheim and Jerome Robbins produced an iconic dance musical that has swept audiences off their feet for over 60 years.
