West Side Story Charlotte NC Tickets


Through the ages, West Side Story has established itself as a modern classic. It is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, written by the famous English playwright from 1591 to 1595, and still captivates minds after half a century.

Telling the mid-50s story of two warring New York gangs, the Sharks from Puerto Rico are at loggerheads with the arrogant Jets from the white working-class. One of the Jets’ founders who has given up on gang-life, Tony, is talked into appearing at a hostile dance-off with the Sharks by his brother Riff, leader of the Jets.
