More than fifty years ago one musical changed theatre forever. Now it's back and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, "West Side Story" soars as the greatest love story of all time. This revival, based on Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents' Broadway direction, remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway's finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as "Something's Coming," "Tonight," "America," "I Feel Pretty," and "Somewhere." As the Associated Press says, "'West Side Story' remains Broadway's best dance-driven musical. Five decades have not dimmed the extraordinary choreography or the score that pulsates throughout."
