When West Side Story opened on Broadway in 1957, it heralded a new age of American musical theatre. Its exploration of ethnic and cultural divides was unprecedented, and its dark tone set it apart from the bright and cheerful musicals that tended to populate the Great White Way. Based on Shakespeares Romeo & Juliet, it tells the story of two rival New York City gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. A doomed romance develops between Tony, a Jet, and Maria, the sister of the Sharks leader. The eclectic, sophisticated songs by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim have endured for decades, and songs like Maria, Tonight and America have become standards. Sing sixteen songs from this groundbreaking production. Each number is presented with note-perfect backing tracks and removable guide vocals.
