West Side Story Syracuse Tickets

West Side Story Syracuse Tickets

West Side Story Tickets

One of the most beloved and longest-running Broadway shows in history is back with a new revival and national tour. StubHub has theater tickets available for West Side Story, the Broadway classic that earned its place in the hearts and souls of musical fans the world over with its phenomenal score and lyrics, written by icons Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, and a classic tale of love against all odds. Unforgettable songs like "Maria," "I Feel Pretty," and "America" became instant favorites, and transformed the Broadway scene into a more progressive and modern world.

West Side Story

The first production of West Side Story was first conceived in 1947 as a musical re-telling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet set in New York City in the mid-20th century. After many rounds of re-writes in order to get the material perfect, Bernstein and Sondheim settled on the plot we know and love today. Tony and Maria, star-crossed lovers from two different ethnic backgrounds (Italian and Puerto Rican, respectively,) must contend with the consequences of their families and friends discovering their secret. Their story ends tragically with a fight between rival gangs the Jets (to which Tony belonged) and the Sharks (to whom Maria's friends and family gave their loyalty) gone awry, but the ultimate message is one of unyielding love and staying true to yourself in the face of adversity and pressure. Not only does West Side Story tell a poignant story of love and loss, but conveys a timeless lesson about diversity and the cultural climate of gang culture in the 1950's and 1960's. Maria's sister, Anita, illustrates the plight of immigrants in the mid-century and their struggle to integrate into American culture while still staying true to their heritage in the poignant number "America," where she disparages Maria and girls like her for abandoning her culture while sarcastically mocking the notion of the American Dream.

Theater Tickets

Hard-hitting cultural commentary and soulful avant-garde music and lyrics are not the only reasons why West Side Story has stood the test of time. Bernstein and Sondheim created characters that are still influential and iconic nearly 60 years later. The original Broadway production cast launched the career of Chita Rivera, who played Anita, and established the roles of Maria and Tony as the ultimate goal for aspiring actors vying for the positions in productions on the West End, Broadway, and regional and international tours.
