More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it’s back and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time and remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. 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.” As the Associated Press says, “West Side Story remains Broadway’s best dancedriven musical. Five decades have not dimmed the extraordinary choreography or the score that pulsates throughout.”

Theo Lencicki, who plays Riff in this production of Westside Story, spoke with Jonathan Zaros about the play, the famous story, and what you can expect to see if you go.
