The 7th production of the 2015 Season

Book by: Arthur Laurents
Music by: Leonard Bernstein, Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Conception of: Jerome Robbins
Based on: Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time. The score is widely regarded as one of the best ever written, with such hit songs as “Maria”, “America”, “Somewhere”, “Tonight”, “I Feel Pretty”, “A Boy Like That”, “One Hand, One Heart”, “Gee, Officer Krupke”, and “Cool”. This show contains mature themes.
