This summer, the world’s greatest love story comes to Red Bank in this landmark Broadway revival!

Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this story is transported to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time. West Side Story is one of the greatest musical love stories of all time.

Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever.  With a score written by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim it is widely regarded as one of the best.
