The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet 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.

 

Highlighting the talents of our young ensemble cast, WEST SIDE STORY will certainly be an event not to be missed on the campus of the University of Illinois this fall. The show has wowed audiences around the world and is making its return to campus. The exciting, sophisticated score by Bernstein and Sondheim is often considered Broadway's finest--its songs part of the nation's musical heritage. The show is an impressive showcase for accomplished dancers.
