From the first notes of its vibrant score to the last, the landmark Broadway musical is one of the theatre’s finest accomplishments as Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” is transported to 1950s New York City, where two idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the American Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks.
The couple’s struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice unfolds in the heart-wrenching drama presented by 18- to 25-year-old actors.
