One of the most celebrated musicals of all time, West Side Story will play a limited season at Arts Centre Melbourne from 6 to 28 April, 2019. This timeless classic is a 1950s musical take on Romeo and Juliet but instead of warring families, it features New York gangs battling for domination of the streets. You have The ‘Jets’, sons of previous immigrants to America, warring with the new arrivals from Puerto Rico, the ‘Sharks.’
With music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Arthur Laurents this remarkable collaboration is a timeless masterpiece. The score features classic songs like ‘Tonight’, ‘Maria’, ‘America’, ‘Something’s Coming’ and ‘Somewhere’.
