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 modern-day 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. Featuring beloved songs “Maria”, “Something’s Coming”, “America”, and “I Feel Pretty”.

 

Book by Arthur Laurents; Music by Leonard Bernstein; Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Based on a conception of Jerome Robbins; Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet
