About The Show


One of the most groundbreaking and romantic musicals ever written, West Side Story resets Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to the 1950s and the turbulent and passionate streets of New York’s West Side.

Tony is a dreamer, ready to leave his street gang behind and face the future head-on; Maria is idealistic and looking to explore womanhood and the world beyond her family’s dress shop. When the two meet, their worlds stop—and cultural divides and societal expectations give way to star-crossed love.

Featuring one of the most exciting scores ever written for the stage, and a story that tackles topics of prejudice, street violence, and the need for compassion between communities, this Berkeley Playhouse premiere will rumble in your heart long after the final note is sung.
