Should I see West Side Story the Musical
What Is West Side Story Like?
Considered a great groundbreaking musical, West Side Story has remained a poignant, provocative and emotionally devastating piece of theater for over half a century. Dark in tone and content, the show is flush with many of legendary composer Leonard Bernstein's most famous compositions, offering a richly layered score played by a full orchestra-a rare find, even on Broadway, these days. Factor in recreations of original director and choreographer Jerome Robbins' equally iconic choreography, and the production becomes an electrifying piece of musical drama. Despite West Side's difficult themes, the show also offers some of the biggest, brightest crowd-pleasers in theater history, including uber-ballad "Tonight," the chirpy "America" and the hilariously macabre "Gee Officer Krupke." The show may be a rollercoaster of emotions, but it offers something for every taste.
Is West Side Story Good for Kids?
Let's make one thing clear-audience members of all ages should come armed with tissues. Like its Shakespearian predecessor, all is not well that doesn't end well, so those upset by anything less than a pitch-perfect happy ending should enter warily. The show also deals with adult themes: violence, murder, rape and bigotry all get their turn in the spotlight, as do bad language, sexual innuendos and racial slurs. While the tiniest tots may not be ready for this sort of musical education, West Side Story is a valuable experience for theater buffs and newbies alike. If your brood can handle the Academy Award-winning film, then they (and you) will be well prepared for what will play out on the Broadway stage.
West Side Story
The stunning Los Angeles Pantages Theater has been a staple on Hollywood Boulevard and one of the biggest Broadway venues in Southern California since its inception on June 4, 1930. This nostalgic theater recently announced its 2013 line-up of events and as a Broadway fanatic I flipped to see that West Side Story is playing there this year. Who can resist this fifties-themed quote un quote modern day Romeo and Juliet. As the Jets and the Sharks commit violent crimes against one another in the streets of Los Angeles, the sister of one gang member falls in love with a member of the other gang and what erupts next is a tragic tale of love gone awry. This stunning story was a 1961 hit film and prior to that first became a Broadway hit in 1957. The original ran for 732 performances before embarking on a tour. The hit film starred Natalie Wood and won ten Academy Awards out of an astounding eleven nominations. Natalie Wood was one of the biggest stars in the world at that time. Now you can see this classic tale revisited when you order your Pantages Theater West Side Story Tickets. Don't miss your chance to catch this beautiful and violent story come to life on stage at the Pantages Theater. The music was originally provided by Leonard Bernstein with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. With Maria, the sister of Bernardo, the Shark's leader, falls in love with Tony, a former member of the Jets, chaos ensues as Bernardo forbids his sister to see Tony and threatens the Jets and Tony if Tony doesn't cease to see Maria. This epic tale is a modern-day American take on Romeo and Juliet and touches on socio-political issues of the 1950's such as immigration, low-wages, working class, and more.
