West Side Story
In this musical adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragedy Romeo and Juliet, the Italian families have been replaced by Jets and Sharks on the streets of New York in the 1960s. Tony is the best friend of the leader of the Jets, and when he meets Maria, sister to the leader of the Sharks, they fall deeply in love. They make plans to run away together, someplace where their differences don’t matter, but destiny has a different plan for the two. This classic musical with music from Leonard Bernstein was awarded 10 Oscars, including best director and best picture.
