#TheaterPH - Thoughts About West Side Story In Manila

WEST SIDE STORY has been first brought to life way back 1957 and up to this time, this musical piece has been relevant. It comes to Manila as part of a worldwide tour, following sold-out seasons around the world, including London, Paris, Sydney and Berlin. 

A girl. Two rival gangs. One fatal love affair.

WEST SIDE STORY is inspired by Shakespeare’s tumultuous love story Romeo and Juliet, and is set amidst the vicious rivalry of teenage gangs in 1950s New York. In a sweltering New York summer, the boys from the Upper West Side neighborhood are on the prowl.  Ready to explode at any moment they dance with their girls, the air vibrating with the rhythms of mambo, rock ‘n’ roll and jazz.  They belong to two enemy street gangs ruling the immigrant quarter – the Jets and the Sharks – and a clash is imminent.  The Jets, sons of previous immigrants to America, are fighting the new arrivals from Puerto Rico, the Sharks, for domination of the streets in the area.  Among them, Tony, a Jet, and Maria, sister to the leader of the Sharks, fall in love.

Thank you Concertus Manila and Globe Live for bringing West Side Story in Manila!

Dubbed as world's greatest dance musical, I am in awe while watching the whole show. The production itself demands a high level of energy, skills and talent. The show is truly world class and a masterpiece. 

Are you team Jets or Team Sharks?
