West Side Story

JUNE 16-25
Buskirk-Chumley Theater

Overview

Rounding out the season is Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim’s masterwork West Side Story. Inspired by Romeo and Juliet and showcasing one of the greatest scores in musical theatre history, Cardinal’s production of West Side promises to bring the 10th Anniversary Season to a grand, glorious, sweeping conclusion.

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican 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.
