West Side Story is a beautiful and energetic retelling of Romeo and Juliet set in and amongst New York's teen-age street gangs of the 1950s. The original production, directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins, brillantly combined storytelling, song, classical music and dance to create a classic piece of American Musical Theatre.
