AN ICONIC AMERICAN MUSICAL

It's 1957 and two rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, are prowling the streets of Manhattan's West Side. When Tony falls for Maria, the sister of a rival gang member, a rumble is planned. Like Romeo and Juliet they're caught in an ages-long feud with no escape, even as they pledge their love for each other. Through the genius of Bernstein and Sondheim, incomparable hits like "Maria," "Tonight," "Cool" and "I Feel Pretty" are merged with the greatest love story ever told in this larger-than-life musical.

A FEEL GOOD, MUSIC-FILLED COMEDY

As an Elvis impersonator at Cleo’s bar, Casey had everything going for him, including a new sequin jumpsuit. But just like that he loses his gig, rent is overdue and his wife announces there’s a baby on the way. So when Elvis leaves the building and a drag show moves in, all hands are on deck for Casey’s transformation. He always knew he’d be a star – but not quite like this. With snappy zingers and show-stopping numbers, you won’t want to miss this wildly entertaining show.
