Why See West Side Story?
West Side Story is on tour and hits the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, PA, Closed April 8, 2012
More than fifty years ago, a show about New York City changed musical theatre forever. Now, it's coming home to make history once again.
From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever.
The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim -a collection of standards that includes 'Tonight,' 'America,' 'Maria,' 'I Feel Pretty' and 'Somewhere' - is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. And the extraordinary, Tony-winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance.
Don't miss this thrilling presentation of a matchless work of art!
