Coming to the Pomegranate Theatre in February 2019, Chesterfield Studios presents West Side Story.
From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The world’s greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre’s finest accomplishments.
Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
West Side Story is showing from Tuesday 19th to Thursday 21st February at Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre.
Tickets are still available from Chesterfield Theatres Box Office on 01246 345222 or through their website at www.chesterfieldtheatres.co.uk
West Side Story is the first event that celebrates Chesterfield Studios 10 year anniversary. Further concerts at the Pomegranate and Rose Hill Theatres are planned for later in 2019.
