Celebrating Leonard Bernstein’s centenary – indelible songs anchor a Romeo and Juliet story set in the streets of New York
Based on the hit Broadway musical this Academy Award-winning movie has stood the test of time.
Richard Beymer is Tony, co-founder of the New York street gang the Jets, and Natalie Wood is Maria, sister of the leader of the Puerto Rican Sharks. Even with love at first sight, can they bridge the racial divide?
Bernstein’s dynamic songs have lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and the first-rate direction is a collaboration between choreographer Jerome Robbins and Hollywood veteran Robert Wise. With Rita Moreno, George Chakiris, Russ Tamblyn.
