"So exciting it makes you ache with pleasure...it's both airborne and transcendent..."—The New Yorker

"This production is enthralling, electric and taken to a level of pure physical exhilaration..."—The New York Times

"Electrifying, propulsive, thrilling..this masterwork has been given the revival it deserves..."—Variety

From the first note to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the greatest love stories of all time. Directed by David Saint, using Tony-winning librettist Arthur Laurents’ Broadway direction, West Side Story remains as powerful and poignant as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim — which includes standards “Tonight,” “America,” “Maria” and “Somewhere” — is regarded as one of the best ever written for the stage, and the extraordinary choreography by Jerome Robbins did nothing less than rewrite the language of Broadway dance.
