Why see West Side Story?

West Side Story is on tour and hits the in , ,

More than fifty years ago, a show about New York City changed musical theatre forever. Now, it's coming home to make history once again.

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever.

The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim -a collection of standards that includes 'Tonight,' 'America,' 'Maria,' 'I Feel Pretty' and 'Somewhere' - is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. And the extraordinary, Tony-winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance.

Don't miss this thrilling presentation of a matchless work of art!

Better than the movie.

I just returned from a Vancouver matinee performance (Feb. 9/2014) of West Side Story. I have always loved this story, the movie, vocals and the superb music. I rate this live performance better than the movie. Everything was just perfect: I salute the dancers, the singers, and the orchestra. I rate this performance as one best live shows I have ever attended and this include many shows in London and New York. I can find no fault with this production. If the performers read this review I say well done. George McGuire ... Read more

Must see

Saw the play in Riverside March 2014 . You know it's good when youre still talking about it the next day. Too bad Bernardo played by Micheal Spencer Smith is killed so early in the play. I would have loved to see more of him. ... Read more

ORPHEUM AND WEST SIDE STORY FAN

OFFICER KRUPKE SEGMENT DETRACTED FROM 5 STAR PERFORMANCE

ENJOYED THE PLAY AND THE MUSIC IN PHX PERFORMANCE, BUT MUST AGREE THAT "OFFICER KRUPKE' SEGMENT ADDED UNNECESSARY GESTURES WHICH DISTRACTED FROM THE DANCE ROUTINE AND THE PLAY IN GENERAL. THE PERFORMANCE AS A WHOLE WAS VERY GOOD... ACTOR WHO PLAYED TONY HAD BEAUTIFUL VOICE AND ACTING BY EVERYONE WAS STAR QUALITY. ORCHESTRA DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB ALSO. JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THE NEED TO ADD ANY VULGARITY, HOWEVER MINOR, AS A FORM OF UPDATING A CLASSIC. ... Read more
