The tour smash hit Broadway revival of West Side Story is coming to Vancouver! West Side Story will open at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Feb. 4, 2014.
West Side Story tells the story of star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria as they struggle to rise above the hatred and intolerance that surrounds them. West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time and remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.”
West Side Story is written by three theatrical luminaries: two-time Tony Award winner Arthur Laurents (book) and multiple Tony and Grammy Award winners Leonard Bernstein (music) and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics) in his Broadway debut.
West Side Story features scenic designs by James Youmans, costumes by Tony Award nominee David C. Woolard, lighting by Tony Award winner Howell Binkley and sound design by Peter McBoyle.
Performances run, Feb. 4 to 9 2014; Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. with Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m. matinees and Sunday evening at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for West Side Story vary in range depending on performance, seat location and date of purchase and start at $35 plus applicable service fees.
