Theatre a Go-Go presents West Side Story inspired by the timeless story of Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story takes Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, and places them in the battleground of New York City’s West Side in the 1950s. In the midst of the rivalry between the Sharks and the Jets, Maria and Tony discover that ancient grudges are no match for true love. Their warring factions, however, refuse to back down, and the “rumbles”, romance and resentment lead the path to the lovers’ tragic conclusion. With diverse melodies, dance battles and its remarkable social message, West Side Story remains one of American musical theatre’s most loved treasures. Rated PG
