West Side Story remains Broadway's best dance-driven musical.
Worcester, MA (PRWEB) August 10, 2012
The most beloved musical of all time is coming to The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts in Worcester, MA, New England’s second largest city, from December 28 – December 30. WEST SIDE STORY tells the story of star-crossed lovers, Tony and Maria, as they struggle to rise above the hatred and intolerance that surrounds them. WEST SIDE STORY soars as the greatest love story of all time and remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever.
WEST SIDE STORY is written by three theatrical luminaries: two-time Tony Award winner, Arthur Laurents (book,) and multiple Tony and Grammy Award winners, Leonard Bernstein (music) and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics).
The Associated Press says WEST SIDE STORY “remains Broadway’s best dance-driven musical. Five decades have not dimmed the extraordinary choreography or the score that pulsates throughout.” Variety says, “The true stars of WEST SIDE STORY are Jerome Robbins' graceful, endlessly expressive choreography and Leonard Bernstein's score, which still sounds bracingly modern a half-century after it was first heard. The music is a primal force.”
The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as "Something’s Coming," "Tonight," "America," "I Feel Pretty" and "Somewhere."
