From a talented cast of young actors (all under the age of 18) comes this timeless musical tale of star-crossed romance. A reimagining of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, this cherished production tells of the ill-fated love affair between Tony and Maria as it plays out amidst the gang rivalry between the Sharks and the Jets. With lively music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd), this favorite of the stage features such hit songs as "Something's Coming," "Maria," "America" and "I Feel Pretty." Also adapted into an Academy Award-winning feature film, West Side Story remains an unforgettable theatrical experience. Learn More

If you saw the first show, then you could skip the entire first act -- it is a rehash of the first show. I recognized all the characters, all the jokes, all the laugh lines. Still, the first act was okay (it was much better if you HADN'T seen it before). The second act had absolutely nothing to do with the first one -- which is to say it was new and original. There is something to offend most everyone, but only in a glancing way. The show is far too clever and proud of itself, but most audience members really seemed to like it. I give it 3 stars if you haven't seen the first show, only 2 if you have (due to the warmed-over leftovers nature of the first act).

Ten years ago Robert Dubac figured out what women want. He popped open a Corona and invited us into his lopsided brain to witness his hilarious thought process known as The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? This hysterical one-man show went on to become a worldwide phenomenon, proving humor between the sexes is understood in any language. The reviews were stellar.
The bar was set for his sequel, Male Intellect: The 2nd Coming! Part theater and part stand-up, Dubac transforms himself into a cast of characters hell-bent on crystallizing life’s ironies. He picks up where he left off--inside his head--ransacking his brain to figure out what women want. Yes, he figured it out last time...but he’s a man, so he forgot.
This show is presented by Miracle Theatre Productions (MTP), the company that operated the Theatre in Old Town (a Goldstar favorite!) for more than 15 years.
Robert Dubac strives to raise our collective humor bar by crystallizing the bigger picture with a wit and intellect that is fueled with ire and filled with charm. He is an innovative performer who is always redefining his roles from actor to comic to writer to director.
Performing came early, and by the age of 14 he began pounding the pavement with a magic act that took him from his home city of Atlanta to gigs up and down the southeast coastline on weekends and during school vacations. Dubac studied drama while performing a magic act that slowly evolved into a fine stand-up comedy routine. Oddly enough he was discovered by the rock n' roll world and toured with such acts as Kenny Loggins, Linda Rondstadt and Jimmy Buffet.
Finding himself right smack in the middle of the stand-up explosion of the seventies, he made the trek out west and successfully rode the comedy wave until it crashed in on itself in the mid-eighties. It was then that Dubac returned to his dramatic roots when he was chosen to study with a select group of actors under the tutelage of the great Sanford Meisner. After completion he succeeded to work in films, sitcoms and even daytime television. In the early nineties he created his hit one-man show The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? which has been touring worldwide ever since.
In 2006 he launched the sequel to The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? titled Male Intellect: The 2nd Coming. Dubac tours the country with both shows while feverishly finishing the final installment of this solo trilogy, The Male Intellect: Piss and Moan.
In his spare time, he directed another solo show titled Man 1, Bank 0, and is embarking on a collaborative performance piece with some like-minded satirists titled The Barbarians of Truth.
