When the only family you've ever known is a gang, and the only home you've ever had is a small patch of turf, anyone from anywhere else is an outsider. It's here on the West Side, springing from a crack in the sidewalk and surrounded by despair, that the greatest love story ever retold blooms - and burns.

When opposites inevitably attract, and when the unlikely new couple tries to reconcile their worlds, the more their dream of finding a place of their own is torn apart. And from the first cigarette to the final "te adoro," watching is such sweet sorrow.

With the original symphonic score, and Jerome Robbins's original choreography adding a kick of kinetic eye candy, tonight truly won't be just any night.

Sung in English with English subtitles.

West Side Story is underwritten in part by the Hall Family Foundation.

Tickets on sale July 9, 2018.
