When it comes to theater, perhaps no one person is more famous than William Shakespeare. Out of all of Shakespeare's plays,
the one that most people know the most about is Romeo and Juliet, the story of two star-crossed lovers. The story was updated
in the musical West Side Story, and now West Side Story has become one of the best-loved theater
shows on the scene.
West Side Story is about
two gangs in New York City during the 1950s, the Jets and the Sharks. Tony has ties to the Jets, and he meets and falls in
love with Maria, who has family connections with the Sharks. The two begin seeing each other on the sly, but their happiness
is threatened by conflict between the two groups. When the truth comes out, it may be too late.
One of the ways that West Side Story has added new life to this classic story is through the score. Many of the songs from
West Side Story are known even by those who have never seen the show. The score includes songs like "Maria," "Tonight," "America,"
"I Feel Pretty," "A Boy Like That" and many more. Don't miss the show when it comes to Fort Lauderdale.
