The 5th Avenue Theatre Downtown
May 31–June 23
Recommended by Christopher Frizzelle
One of the most famous musicals of all time—the first major work Stephen Sondheim ever wrote lyrics to—West Side Story is getting the Bill Berry treatment at 5th Avenue Theatre. The director is known for exuberant takes on classic American musicals and for brilliant casting choices. Excitingly, this production will also feature Jerome Robbins’s original choreography, which ought to be a delight for the eyeballs. West Side Story didn’t win best musical at the Tonys the year it came out (The Music Man did), but it did win best choreography.
