About this show

Hillbarn Theatre, the Peninsula's premier theater company, opens its 2018-19 season with the Tony Award-winning musical West Side Story. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence, and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching, and relevant musical dramas of our time.

Under the direction of Erica Wyman Abrahamson, West Side Story will run from August 30-September 16.
