The musical, based loosely on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, but set on Manhattan, explores the rivalry between two teenage gangs of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The young protagonist, Tony, who belongs to the native Manhattan gang, falls in love with Maria, the sister of the leader of the rival Puerto Rican gang. Don't miss your chance to see The Playmakers bring you the sophisticated music, exciting dance scenes, and an intriguing insight to social problems that marked a turning point in American musical theater.
