West Side Story is the modern musical adaption of Romeo and Juliet that debuted on Broadway in 1957. Interestingly, the setting was to take place on New York’s Lower East Side with tensions flaring between Jews and Catholics during the Passover and Easter holidays. The original setting left the authors uninspired and the project was put on hold. Years later, when Arthur Laurents proposed changing the basis of conflict from religion to race, the show gained creative momentum and West Side Story was born.
This should be a great production. The latest album version won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album. The score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest. I recognize some of the songs and didn’t realize they were from this show including: “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Somewhere.”
