Often regarded as the greatest love story of all time, this landmark Broadway musical returns to the Mac-Haydn. With a powerful, poignant book, and unforgettable music and lyrics by iconic team Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, West Side Story changed musical theatre forever.

Shakespeare’s most beloved Romeo and Juliet takes a new life in 20th Century New York City. Tony and Maria, two young, idealistic lovers, find themselves caught between warring street gangs, and the prejudice, hate and grudges between their two communities. We follow their star-crossed struggle through a groundbreaking message that still rings true, 67 years after its creation.

West Side Story is guaranteed to be a breathtaking, thrilling and timely launch to the 2024 Season. Full of diverse, memorable music including “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Somewhere,” as well as the unforgettable “Dance At The Gym”. This masterpiece of theater promises to make an indelible impression on audiences of all ages.
