When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way. Unless you fall head over heels in love with a Shark… and you’re set on a dramatic, romantic, inevitable collision course with tragedy. The tale of star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria at the center of this most iconic of American musicals will grip your heart and never let go.
Now, Bangkok will be among the first few cities in the world to see this stunning new production of West Side Story, featuring the original choreography by Jerome Robbins, with an all-American cast steered by a highly acclaimed New York-based creative team including Emmy Award-winning director Lonny Price and choreographer Julio Monge who also served as artistic consultant for the latest film version by Steven Spielberg.
Brace yourself for this masterpiece of Broadway, a moving love story, coming-of-age tale, and action thriller that has brought audiences to tears and to their feet since Sondheim and Bernstein debuted it in the 1950s.
