The Sharks and the Jets rumble once again as Moonlight Stage Productions presents the triumphant musical classic “West Side Story”at the Moonlight Amphitheatre, August 14 –31 at 8 p.m. This epic musical that changed Broadway forever when it made its Broadway debut in 1957 is still relevant today and maintains its place as an audience favorite

The Story

The creative team of Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, and Arthur Laurents placed Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” on the gritty backstreets of New York City’s west side in the 50s where Tonyand Mariaseek a “somewhere” where their romance can survive in the midst of warring gangs and deep prejudice. Tony and Maria’s star-crossedsongs enrichevery scene, fromthe romance of “Maria” and “Tonight,” the exuberance of “America,” to the humor of “Gee, Officer Krupke.” Jerome Robbins’ legendary choreography will be re-created in this production by choreographer Hector Guerrero.
