West Side Story has been
a popular stage musical since its stage debut in 1957. The show takes place in New York City during the mid-1950s and examines
a fierce rivalry between two local street gangs, the Sharks and the Jets. The former of which are from Puerto Rico, while
the latter are a group of working-class white kids. Caught up in the middle are Tony and Maria, who fall in love, further
agitating the alliances with their friends and family members.
A new version of the classic production has popped up recently on stages around the country. And though the plot and musical
score remain the same, it has been hailed as more authentic, integrating the use of the Spanish language and coming across
as much more realistic. Head to the theater
in Detroit, Michigan and sing along to ballads like "Tonight," "I Feel Pretty" and "Maria."
