WEST SIDE STORY

Based on a Conception of Jerome Robbins. Book by Arthur Laurents. Music by Leonard Bernstein. Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Entire Original Production Directed and Choreographed by Jerome Robbins. Originally Produced on Broadway by Robert E. Griffith and Harold S. Prince by Arrangement with Robert L. Stevens

Directed by Sam Williams. Choreographed by Sarah Williams-Souther and Sam Williams. Orchestra Conducted by Susan Hamre. Vocal Direction by Tracy Martin Shearer



West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and great love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim are widely regarded as among the best ever written. Its exciting, sophisticated score by Leonard Bernstein is often considered Broadway's finest, its songs a part of the nation's musical heritage. And the dancing, originally staged by Jerome Robbins, is remarkable.



The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican 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.

By Madhuri Shekar

This right-now romantic comedy is set on a campus very much like ARC. A World of Warcraft gamer and student, adorably nerdy Evie is an expert on love advice, but has never been on a date IRL. She meets hottie Raul and worlds collide.
