Inspired by Shakespeare’s tumultuous love story Romeo and Juliet, and set amidst the vicious rivalry of teenage gangs in 1950s New York, WEST SIDE STORY’s ground-breaking choreography and unforgettable score changed the face of musical theatre for ever when it burst onto the Broadway stage in 1957.
Now a vibrant new stage production of the classic dance musical is coming to Auckland, following wild acclaim and sold-out seasons around the world, from London to Tokyo, and Sydney to Johannesburg.
An outstanding international cast will electrify audiences with their passionate high-energy dance routines and their astounding vocal range in such classic songs as Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America and I Feel Pretty.
WEST SIDE STORY packs a powerful punch, both dramatically and musically. The movie version went on to win an incredible 10 Oscars (including Best Picture) and further cemented the reputation of this undoubted masterpiece.
