One of the most beloved musicals ever, "West Side Story" takes Shakespeare's most famous romantic drama, "Romeo and Juliet", and transports it to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time. The famed 1961 film adaptation won 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and the Broadway version has become a true American classic.
