West Side Story Hershey Theatre Tickets
The tale of forbidden love is the oldest story in the book. The sensual gratification of achieving what you lust for drives the pursuer to overcome all barriers and impediments in the way. The themes of love, betrayal, feud and settlement ingrained in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juilet were encapsulated in the iconic musical West Side Story some five decades ago, with the West Side Story Hershey Theatre staging a veritable testament to its enduring legacy.
The plot of West Side Story depicts the blossoming of the romance between Tony and Maria in the streets of New York. Tony hails from the working class Jets who take pride in their "Americanism" and staunchly abhor Maria's family the Sharks who are of Puerto Rican origin. Tony and Maria's relationship treads on thin ice and ends in Tony falling through whilst Maria is left holding on to his memory, though ending the feud between the two families in the process.
The West Side Story was conceived, choreographed and directed by Jerome Robbins. Music composition has been done by Leonard Bernstein with Stephen Sondheim having penned the lyrics. Originally premiering on Broadway in 1957, the West Side Story Hershey Theatre show will bear out its timeless appeal.
With the original Broadway production garnering a duo of Tony Awards and a Theater World Award, the successive Broadway and West End revivals added a Drama Desk Award, another Tony and a Grammy for ‘Best Musical Show Album’.
