Called a “musical theatre euphoria” by Chicago Sun Times, this crowd pleasing remount features over 100 artists in this iconic Broadway musical. Leonard Bernstein’s music and Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics transport Romeo and Juliet to the backstreets of New York City. Tony and Maria are wide-eyed teenagers from two communities in conflict, who fall in love. As their friends and family battle with one another, Tony and Maria long for “a place for us…somewhere.” Their songs illuminate every scene and permeate our culture, from the romance of “Maria” and “Tonight” to the exuberance of “America” and the humor of “Gee, Officer Krupke.” Add to that the bold, sexy, iconic choreography of Jerome Robbins that smolders and sizzles with energy, and you have a timeless musical theater experience you’ll never forget.
