Direct from a sell-out season at London Sadler’s Wells and following international critical acclaim, West Side Story comes to Plymouth!

With ground breaking choreography by the legendary Jerome Robbins, book by Arthur Laurents, an unforgettable score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, West Side Story changed the face of musical theatre for ever. Now Joey McKneely’s vibrant stage production is thrilling audiences once again.

Based on a conception by Jerome Robbins. Book by Arthur Laurents.
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Music by Leonard Bernstein.
Entire original production directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins.
Originally produced on Broadway by Robert E. Griffith and Harold S. Prince. By arrangement with Roger L. Stevens.

Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and packed with unforgettable songs including Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America and I Feel Pretty, this production of West Side Story is ‘still as gloriously fresh, relevant and thrilling as ever’ (Time Out 2013)

Be sure not to miss this production of the classic musical, ‘there’s nothing more exciting or engaging at the moment on stage’ (Telegraph 2013).
