One of the greatest musicals of all time, WEST SIDE STORY returns to Sadler's Wells after a sell-out season in 2008 during its 50th anniversary year.
With groundbreaking choreography by the legendary Jerome Robbins, book by Arthur Laurents, an unforgettable score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, WEST SIDE STORY changed the face of musical theatre forever.
Based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and packed with unforgettable songs including "Maria", "Tonight", "Somewhere", "America" and "I Feel Pretty", WEST SIDE STORY has been described as “a masterpiece of musical theatre” (Daily Mail) and “a musical landmark” (The Guardian).
Joey McKneely's vibrant stage production of this classic dance musical features Robbins' original choreography, as fresh as it has ever been, and an excellent cast renowned for their stunning energy and technical brilliance. Celebrated conductor and composer Donald Chan leads the live orchestra to play Bernstein's iconic score.
The story is set in an Upper West Side neighborhood in New York City in the mid-1950s. Rivalry abounds between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds. The young protagonist, Tony, one of the Jets, falls in love with Maria, the sister of Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks.
