Be sure to see the captivating production of West Side Story, the timeless musical coming to the Houston Grand Opera on Saturday, April 28th! This fantastic work brings the classic tale and all the songs you know and love to the stage, and is sure to be a highlight of every theater-lover’s weekend.
Don’t miss this iconic story of two young lovers, divided by battling gangs in the harsh streets of New York City’s West Side, that broke the mold of musical theater forever. Maria and Tony fall helplessly in love at a school dance, but Maria’s brother is the leader of the Sharks—a street gang—and Tony is one of their hated enemies, the Jets. Their love story, just like Romeo and Juliet’s, ends in a tragedy that has touched the hearts of audiences for generations.
Since its Broadway debut in the 1950s, West Side Story has been heralded as a genre game changer—the legendary writers Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim make every line of the play come to life with a lovable tune, making West Side Story as emotionally charged as it is entertaining. Come experience the passion, drama, and the heart-stopping dancing that raised the bar and set new expectations for musicals and stage productions forever! It’s taking the stage on April 28th, so mark your calendar and see the show.
