“So Exciting It Makes You Ache with Pleasure.”– John Lahr, The New Yorker

More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it’s back on stage and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, WEST SIDE STORY soars as the greatest love story of all time. WEST SIDE STORY remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The new Broadway cast album of WEST SIDE STORY recently won the 2010 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Show Album. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as “Something’s Coming,”“Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.”
