Hillbarn Theatre opens its 2018–19 season with the Tony Award-winning musical WEST SIDE STORY. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. 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.
With a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, West Side Story features some of Broadway’s most iconic songs, including “Something Coming,” “Maria,” “America,” “Somewhere,” “Tonight,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “One Hand, One Heart.” The original 1957 Broadway production ran for 732 performances and was nominated for six Tony Awards including Best Musical, winning for Best Choreography and Best Scenic Design. The 1961 musical film, directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins, won ten Academy Awards including Best Picture.
Under the direction of Erica Wyman Abrahamson, West Side Story will perform at Hillbarn Theatre (1285 East Hillsdale Blvd., Foster City) August 30–September 16, 2018. Thursdays—Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
