“an incandescent piece of work”
-The New York Times
Two gangs wage war in the streets of New York City. When Tony of the Jets falls in love with Maria, sister of the leader of the rival Sharks, simmering tensions escalate toward a shocking finale. The explosive dance numbers and unforgettable score changed the face of the American musical.
