LAUDERHILL, Florida – The three-time Tony award-winning Musical, “WEST SIDE STORY” is coming to the Lauderhill Performing Arts Center this November.
The musical will be performed from November 14 to December 1 at 2:00 PM and/or 7:30 PM on select days.
The musical, which also won a Grammy award, reimagines Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in 1950s New York City. A bitter rivalry between two teenage street gangs, the American-born Jets and the Puerto Rican immigrant sharks is forever altered by a Forbidden Love Affair between the young couple, Tony and Maria.
The story star-crossed lovers struggle to rise above the hatred and intolerance that surrounds them. This hit musical was heralded as an electrifying Moment In Theater history but it was open in 1957 and today, it remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever.
