Catch West Side Story The Original Broadway Classic This Weekend

Published on 6th October 2017 by Stickboy BKK

West Side Story - The Original Broadway Classic

Provocative finger snapping of street gangs, Puerto Rican girls’ whirling skirts, derelict West Side back yards –just a few notes of Leonard Bernstein’s world-famous score, featuring songs such as Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America and I Feel Pretty, evoke these images of West Side Story.

The genius of its four creators – Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins, Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim – produced a piece whose great artistic quality remains unquestioned. The film version won ten Oscars and brought the masterwork to an audience of millions just a few years later.

Today West Side Story stands unchallenged as the No. 1 of American musical theatre.

Currently Joey McKneely‘s award-winning staging of West Side Story, the only production in the world to feature Jerome Robbins’ original choreography, is on the road for a global tour. After several performances in Europe, the company are currently preforming in Bangkok as part of the Bangkok International Festival of Dance & Music at the Thailand Cultural Centre.
