West Side Story: Young Cast Stars in Musical Favorite
Alley Stage, 11 Anderson Street NW Corner of Anderson Street and Powder Springs Street Marietta, GA 30064
A talented cast of young people, ages 14 to 20, stars in the timeless Broadway musical that brings the all-consuming love story of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to the streets of 1950s New York, and adds an unforgettable Leonard Bernstein-Stephen Sondheim score. In West Side Story, the ill-fated romance between star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria plays out against the fierce street-gang rivalry between the Sharks and the Jets. Later made into a film that won the Academy Award for Best Picture and recently reprised on TV's Glee, this ahead-of-its-time show features such hits as "Something's Coming," "Maria," "America," "Somewhere," "Tonight" and "I Feel Pretty."
The show runs 2 hours and 15 minutes, with an intermission.
