More than 50 years after its debut, West Side Story remains a Broadway staple. The musical, referred to as a modern day version of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, is rejuvenated by Jerome Robbins' creative choreography and Leonard Bernstein's jazzy orchestral scores. Set in 1950s New York City, where forbidden love is in the air and rage is boiling between the Jets and the Sharks - two teenage street gangs of different socio-ethnic backgrounds - escalating violence is only half of what you've got to look forward to. Fluffy feel-good hits "I Feel Pretty," "Maria," and "Tonight," liven things up.
