West Side Story
The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this classic Broadway musical that is one of modern theatre's finest accomplishments. In West Side Story, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet gets transported to mid-century New York City, as young lovers Tony and Maria find themselves caught between warring street gangs. With timeless songs by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, including "Somewhere," "Maria" and "Something's Coming," the masterful score soars under the Carnegie direction of Brian Robertson and musical direction of William White. Abigail Paschke, star of last year's The Sound of Music, returns to The Carnegie stage as Maria opposite Marcus Shields as Tony.
