The Broadway Musical ‘West Side Story’ Comes to Abilene January 23rd [VIDEO]

West Side Story 9 on stage

West Side Story the play/musical, is coming to Abilene with Celebrity Attractions and it’s the actual Broadway presentation that is currently touring the country.  West Side Story is an American musical with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and choreographed by Jerome Robbins. It was inspired by the William Shakespeare classic Romeo and Juliet. The play will be in Abilene at the Civic Center on Wednesday, January 23rd and tickets are still available.

I think West Side Story is the best musical you will ever experience. I say ‘experience’ because you’ll find yourself engrossed in the drama and love affair. The musical reveals a rivalry between two New York street gangs the Jets and the Sharks. The two teenage street gangs of the early fifties are of different ethnic backgrounds. The members of the Sharks are Puerto Rican and members of the Jets come from a Polish-American working-class. Tony, one of the Jets, falls in love with Maria, the sister of the leader of the Sharks.

I won’t give away any more of the plot, but I will say the music has won more awards and has stood the test of time. I’ll predict that by the end of the play, you’ll be singing along and wanting to “rumble.”
