Two feuding street gangs – the Jets and the Sharks – are on a collision course in the gritty slums of New York City. Out of the chaos, a passionate romance blooms between Tony and Maria, teenagers caught on opposite sides of the turf war. But can they find a place for their love amid the prejudice and turmoil that surrounds them? Winner of 10 Academy Awards and two Tony Awards, Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story is one of the all-time great American musicals, with explosive dancing and some of the most electrifying music ever written for the Broadway stage, including “Maria,” “Tonight”, "One Hand, One Heart" and “Somewhere.”
Executive produced by Audie Gemora and directed by Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, West Side Story will be brought to life in Manila with an exciting cast featuring Christian Bautista as Tony, Karylle and Joanna Ampil alternating as Maria, Rowena Vilar and Pam G alternating as Anita, and Gian Magdangal as Riff.
Musical Direction is by Gerard Salonga, and Choreography by James Laforteza.
