West Side Story

West Side Story is a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set in the mid-20th century on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York City.


The story follows the rivalry between two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds: the Jets (white Americans) and the Sharks (Puerto Rican immigrants).

Amidst this backdrop, a love story unfolds between Tony, a former member of the Jets, and Maria, the sister of Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks.

Their forbidden love story becomes intertwined with the gang rivalry, leading to tragedy and a plea for understanding and peace.

The musical is celebrated for its sophisticated music, intricate dance numbers, and poignant message on the destructive nature of hate and prejudice.
