Performances have been suspended through June 7, 2020. Performances are scheduled to resume on June 9, 2020. The classic American musical returns to Broadway for the first time in more than 25 years!

Two star-crossed lovers, Tony and Maria, find themselves caught between the rival street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds, the Jets and the Sharks. Their struggle to exist together in a world of violence, hate and prejudice is at the center of one of the most heartbreaking, relevant and innovative musicals ever written. When four theatrical giants — Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim — created West Side Story, it was immediately hailed as an "indisputable, boundary-busting masterpiece” (The New York Times) that “explodes every imaginable idea of what a musical can be” (New York Magazine).

The classic American musical returns to Broadway for the first time in more than 25 years!

The classic story of West Side Story transports the achingly beautiful tale of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to the turbulent streets of the Upper West Side in 1950's New York City. Two star-crossed lovers, Tony and Maria, find themselves caught between the rival street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds, the Jets and the Sharks. Their struggle to exist together in a world of violence, hate and prejudice is at the center of one of the most heartbreaking, relevant and innovative musicals ever written.

When four theatrical giants — Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim — created West Side Story, it was immediately hailed as an "indisputable, boundary-busting masterpiece” (The New York Times) that “explodes every imaginable idea of what a musical can be” (New York Magazine). Now, three of the most daring theater-makers of our time — director Ivo van Hove (A View From the Bridge and The Crucible), choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, and designer and frequent Van Hove collaborator Jan Versweyveld — offer a radical, thrilling new interpretation of this iconic work, with extraordinary dancing, breathtaking vision, and 23 young, brilliantly gifted performers all making their Broadway debuts. Don’t miss this opportunity to see a landmark in musical theater history as if for the very first time.

Cast includes Isaac Powell, Shereen Pimentel, Amar Ramasar, Yesenia Ayala, Ben Cook, Ahmad Simmons, Danny Wolohan, Jacob Guzman, Kevin Csolak, Matthew Johnson, Dharon E. Jones, Zuri Noelle Ford, Daniel Oreskes, Pippa Pearthree, and Thomas Jay Ryan.
