THE MEDIA THEATRE HAS 'WEST SIDE STORY' APRIL 19-JUNE 11

The Media Theatre has the legendary musical “West Side Story” April 19 through June 11. With a book by Arthur Laurents and a sweeping score from Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, the musical is often referred to as one of the all-time greats in the Broadway canon.




 “West Side Story” transports Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to New York City in the 1950’s. The story takes place on the west side of Manhattan at a time when many Puerto Ricans moved to NYC. Two young lovers, Tony and Maria, find themselves in the middle of street gangs at war—the Jets and the Sharks. The musical captures the essence of struggling to survive amidst violence and prejudice which is one the main reasons it has remained relevant to this day after premiering on Broadway in 1957.

“West Side Story” highlights youthful performers with energetic choreography and songs such as “Tonight”, “Maria”, “Somewhere”, and “America”.

At The Media Theatre, “West Side Story” is directed and choreographed by Dann Dunn, with Jennie Eisenhower as Associate Director. Christopher Ertelt is the music director. GET TICKETS HERE
