GRAND THEATRICAL PRODUCTION | STADE DE FRANCE CONSORTIUM
A love affair is fated for tragedy amidst the vicious rivalry of two street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. When Jets member Tony falls for Maria, the sister of the Sharks leader, it’s more than these two warring gangs can handle. And as mounting tensions rise, a battle to the death ensues, and innocent bloods shed in a heartbreaking finale.
A reinterpretation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet transposed onto New York’s West Side, the musical’s story of a love affair set against an urban background of interracial warfare.
