West Side Story

24th–27th February 2016, The Winston Theatre

 

‘When love comes so strong, there is no right or wrong.’
New York. 1955. A neighbourhood is tainted with conflict between two street gangs; the American ‘Jets’ and the Puerto Rican ‘Sharks’. Neither can coexist with any form of understanding as they battle for territory and respect. But when former Jet leader Tony meets young Puerto-Rican Maria at a dance everything changes. Is their love doomed for failure? Or does true love conquer all? 
With the original production in 1957 being nominated for six Tony Awards and later being turned into an Academy Award winning film, West Side Story has cemented itself as a true classic. Combining a heart wrenching tale of passion and desire with a beautiful and unforgettable score, West Side Story is a tour de force of musical theatre.
