West Side Story

The 5th Avenue Theatre
1308 5th Avenue Seattle

One of the most groundbreaking and romantic musicals ever written, West Side Story sets Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in the turbulent and passionate streets of New York's West Side during the 1950s. Tony is a dreamer, ready to leave his street gang behind and face the future head-on; Maria is idealistic and looking to explore womanhood and the world beyond her family's dress shop. When the two meet, their worlds stop - and cultural divides and societal expectations give way to star-crossed love. Featuring a live orchestra performing one of the most exciting scores ever written for the stage, and a story that tackles topics of prejudice, street violence, and the need for compassion between communities, this production at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre will rumble in your heart long after the final note is sung.
