West Side Story comes to town

 

The electrifying classic WEST SIDE STORY is setting the Auckland stage ablaze with an outstanding all-American cast, many of whom come direct from Broadway.
The 32-strong cast — chosen at auditions held at Pearl Studios New York City – will stun audiences with their impassioned high-energy dance routines and astounding vocal range in such classic songs as Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America and I Feel Pretty.

Featuring a live orchestra of 21 world-class musicians — personally selected by Maestro Donald Chan who has been musical director and conductor of this show more than 3000 times –  WEST SIDE STORYis deservedly described as the “No. 1 greatest musical of all time” (The Times, UK).

Inspired by Shakespeare’s tumultuous love story Romeo and Juliet, and set amidst the vicious rivalry of teenage gangs in 1950s New York, WEST SIDE STORY’s ground-breaking choreography by Jerome Robbins and unforgettable score by Leonard Bernstein changed the face of musical theatre for ever when it burst onto the Broadway stage in 1957.

This new production of WEST SIDE STORY is as daring, realistic and relevant today as it was on the day of its premiere.
