Why See West Side Story?


Score by Sondheim and Bernstein

It's Sharks vs Jets in the classic West Side Story, which closes out 5th Avenue's 2018/19 season. One of the most influential musicals of all time, this fiery, Latin music infused show relocates Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to the Upper West Side, replacing Montagues and Capulets with warring street gangs. Caught in the crossfire are Tony and Maria, whose forbidden love will result in tragic consequences. Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein's score includes one classic after another, including 'I Feel Pretty' and 'America'.

Presented in association with Spectrum dance Company, this 5th Avenue production promises to the honor the show's legacy, with a cast of 40 performances backed by a 25-piece orchestra. Bill Berry directs.
