A boy. A girl. Two rival gangs. One fatal love affair.  Inspired by Shakespeare’s tumultuous love story Romeo and Juliet, and set amidst the vicious rivalry of teenage gangs in 1950s New York, WEST SIDE STORY’s ground-breaking choreography by the legendary Jerome Robbins, unforgettable score by Leonard Bernstein and powerful lyrics by Stephen Sondheim changed the face of musical theatre for ever when it burst onto the Broadway stage in 1957. This timeless story remains as relevant today as it has ever been.

This vibrant new production of the classic dance musical, is receiving wild acclaim during sold-out seasons around the world, including London, Tokyo and Sydney. Joey McKneely’s award-winning staging of WEST SIDE STORY, the only production in the world to currently feature Jerome Robbins’ original choreography, will tour to Hong Kong, Singapore and Manila during 2017.

The international tour of WEST SIDE STORY coming to Singapore boasts an all-American cast – many of whom come direct from Broadway – and one of the best WEST SIDE STORY creative teams the world has ever seen. The cast captivated audiences with their impassioned high-energy dance routines and their astounding vocal range in such classic songs as Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America and I Feel Pretty. The musical supervisor is renowned conductor Donald Chan, who studied under Leonard Bernstein himself, and who leads a live orchestra of 21 musicians.

Presenter and CEO of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, James Cundall says, “WEST SIDE STORY is one of the world’s greatest musicals for a reason, and no one ever forgets their first time seeing this iconic show. I am hugely excited to be able to bring this passionate love story — one of the most successful stage shows of all time — back to Singapore. It’s a truly remarkable show with a level of intensity unmatched in musical theatre.”

Chantal Prudhomme, CEO of Base Entertainment Asia added, “It’s a great mix of dance, music, song and story, and we are extremely proud to have 70 new, young and energetic people in our team of cast and company to deliver the modern love story of ‘Romeo & Juliet’.”

ABOUT THE SHOW:
The action takes place over no more than a few hours of two consecutive days and portrays a love story, action thriller and social study all at the same time. WEST SIDE STORY tells the tale of a love between two young people whose happiness is destroyed by the hate of two enemy camps in New York City’s urban jungle.

In a sweltering New York summer, the boys from the Upper West Side neighbourhood 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.

WEST SIDE STORY has been produced three times on Broadway, twice in London’s West End, and enjoyed numerous US, UK and international tours over the last 60 years. The movie version, released in 1961, went on to win an incredible 10 Oscars (including Best Picture) and further cemented the reputation of this undoubted masterpiece.

  53. I have figured out some new points from your website about desktops. Another thing I’ve always imagined is that computers have become a specific thing that each family must have for several reasons. They offer convenient ways to organize the home, pay bills, go shopping, study, hear music and in many cases watch television shows. An innovative way to complete these types of tasks is by using a laptop computer. These computers are mobile, small, robust and mobile.

  54. You have mentioned very interesting details ! ps decent internet site. I didn at attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying that I approved of it. by Mark Twain.

  55. Thanks for enabling me to get new thoughts about computer systems. I also contain the belief that one of the best ways to maintain your notebook in primary condition is a hard plastic-type case, or maybe shell, that suits over the top of one’s computer. These kinds of protective gear are generally model specific since they are made to fit perfectly within the natural housing. You can buy all of them directly from the vendor, or through third party places if they are available for your laptop, however its not all laptop could have a covering on the market. Once again, thanks for your guidelines.

  56. Wow, superb blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is wonderful, as well as the content!

  57. Interesting blog post. The things i would like to make contributions about is that pc memory ought to be purchased if your computer still cannot cope with that which you do along with it. One can install two good old ram boards having 1GB each, as an illustration, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should always check the car maker’s documentation for own PC to make certain what type of storage is essential.

  58. I know of some kids who speak 4 languages! Can you believe that? That is possible because their parents speak a couple of languages apiece. Immersion is a very powerful learning tool, use it! There you have it the “Top 5 Tips for Learning a Foreign Language”. With these “OnlineNewsPakistan” News Website For Pakistan, covering Pakistan and world news with sports news, tips I’m sure you’ll have a better chance at mastering a foreign language.

  59. Thanks for your blog post. A few things i would like to add is that computer system memory should be purchased in case your computer cannot cope with anything you do along with it. One can set up two RAM memory boards with 1GB each, by way of example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should look for the company’s documentation for own PC to make certain what type of ram is necessary.

  60. Thanks for the recommendations you have discussed here. Another thing I would like to say is that computer system memory needs generally go up along with other advances in the technology. For instance, if new generations of processors are made in the market, there is certainly usually a similar increase in the shape demands of both laptop memory as well as hard drive space. This is because the program operated by these processor chips will inevitably increase in power to benefit from the new engineering.
