Two rival gangs. An impossible love
- For more than two months, the Théâtre du Châtelet - just off the Halles district - will perform this cult musical with staging by Lonny Price a great Broadway director!
- The choreography is exceptional, international and revisited
- The story: against a backdrop of social and community rivalries, two gangs clash in New York Manhattan: the Jets and the Sharks.
- It's the drama of Romeo and Juliet in 1950s New York.
- The story is set in the 1950s, when thehe youth of America is divided into clans who seek to reign over a city territory.
- There is the Jetsled by Riff. They are white, working class, born in America but of European descent through their immigrant parents ...
- and there are the Sharkswhose leader is Bernardo. This is the clan of young people from Puerto Rico, also born on American soil and likewise descended from immigrant parents.
- But things get complicated... when Bernardo's sister Maria meets and falls in love with Tonya former head of the Jets ...
Prejudice, street fights... tolerance, love and passion... This "West Side Story", a little jewel straight out of Broadway, is a timeless story that absolutely must be seen or seen again!
