West Side Story first premiered on Broadway in 1957, featuring lyrics by legendary musical composer Stephen Sondheim, an unforgettable score by Leonard Bernstein and ground-breaking choreography by Jerome Robbins. Pitting the Puerto Rican Sharks against their archnemesis The Jets, a white gang, teenagers Tony and Maria find their love affair hanging by a thread as they must decide where their loyalties lie – with their family, or with their heart?
