West Side Story on Broadway TicketsBuy tickets now
West Side Story on Broadway tickets can easily be purchased online. I recommend buying theatre tickets before you travel to New York to save time and money. This revival of West Side Story is directed by Belgian Tony Award winner, Ivo Van Hove, with choreography by, also Belgian, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. The latest edition of this 1957 classic is definitely worth a visit if you’re in New York. The romance between members of rival gangs; Maria and Tony is more relevant than ever!
New York’s Romeo and Juliet
West Side Story takes place in New York’s Upper West Side during the 50’s and is therefore referred to as New York’s Romeo and Juliet. The classic storyline is kept alive in this revival. You’ll be reintroduced to rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, who due to their different ethnic backgrounds, are at war with each other. In the midst of this rivalry impossible romance blossoms, between the Puerto Rican Maria; sister of the leader of the Sharks, and Tony, an old member of the ‘white’ Jets.
West Side Story for a new generation
Enjoy the many well known musical numbers; such as ‘Tonight’, ‘America’ and ‘I Feel Pretty’. The works of Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim are ready for a new generation! The famous dance scenes by Jerome Robbins have been replaced with alternative choreography: A first for the US, where it was not previously allowed. This doesn’t mean that dance takes a less central role, however, in fact, quite the opposite! All the more reason to see the West Side Story of the 21st Century.
