In a musical and modernised adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the tale of West Side Story finds its setting in the streets of 1950s New York. A bitter and tireless rivalry has formed between two gangs, the New York Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks, who are both looking to assert the upper west side as their territory. Their rivalry grows further complicated by a star-crossed romance between Tony and Maria who belong to opposing sides. In amongst the gang’s conflict, the two must consider what is most important: their loyalty to their families and where they’ve come from, or their love for one another.
