Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to 1950s New York City as two young, idealistic lovers Tony and Maria, 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 heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
Musical and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Arthur Laurents with Leonard Bernstein
Based on a concept of Jerome Robbins
