All of the venues that you will see a show in are fantastic and you will not be disappointed in whatever theater that you visit. The shows that are on Broadway are the best that you will see anywhere in the world. If you are looking for a great show to see while you are visiting the area, be sure that you check out West Side Story.

This popular Broadway musical is a classic and you will see why when you see it. West Side Story playbook author, Arthur Laurents, loosely based his musical of, the playwright of all playwrights, William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. West Side Story's music was composed by Leonard Bernstein, all of the musical's lyrics produced by Stephen Sondheim. This is a unique musical because it is a original Broadway musical, meaning that it did not preview anywhere before Broadway, and it debuted in 1957. West Side Story instantly became a smash hit in the community, leading to its Tony Award nomination for Best Musical and Best Choreography. Unfortunately, West Side Story did not win Best Musical; however, it did take home the award for Best Choreography.

West Side Story is a story of a fight between two neighborhood factions, the Jets and the Sharks, each trying to gain domination over the hood. After an altercation that was broken up by the local officers, Lieutenant Schrank and Sergeant Krupke. The two gangs eventually dispersed, but Riff, the leader of the Jets still wants to fight the Sharks and he makes plans for a huge brawl. When the neighborhood gathers together for a town dance, Riff challenges the leader of the Sharks, Bernardo, to fight.

Meanwhile, the lead woman in the musical, Maria, who has just relocated from Puerto Rico, sees Tony at the dance and the two immediately feel a connection to each other. Tony is an ex-Shark that has recently joined the Jets and this is not good because Maria is Bernardo's sister. However, this does not stop the attraction between Maria and Tony and they know right away that they are in love with each other. The two embrace, but their embrace is short lived because Bernardo gets between Tony and Maria. Bernardo will not have his sister in love in a member of the rival gang.

The fight takes place and a series of events molds what happens in the rest of the story.
