WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In a collaboration with Spectrum Dance Theater, honoring the 50th anniversary of the show, The 5th Avenue Theatre presents West Side Story. This co-production, a modern telling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, includes a full orchestra and a large cast of nearly 40 exceptional actors, singers and dancers. Two feuding street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, are on a collision course in the gritty slums of New York City. Out of the chaos, a passionate romance blooms between Tony and Maria, teenagers caught on opposite sides of the turf war. But can they find a place for their love amid the prejudice and turmoil that surrounds them? With explosive dancing and some of the most electrifying music ever written for the Broadway stage ("Maria," "Tonight," "Somewhere"), West Side Story is one of the all-time great American musicals. Winner of 10 Academy Awards in 1961 and two Tony Awards in 1958, this beautiful love story addresses the issue of prejudice in a complex world and remains as fresh today as it was 50 years ago.
