• West Side Story West Side Story

    The No. 1 Greatest Musical of All Time (THE TIMES) is set to be performed on March 23rd to 26th, 2017 at The Prague Congress Centre. West Side Story – the classic Broadway hit that is known world wide will be performed in Prague for the first time; it is of importance to note that it is the only production of the musical in the world that features its original show-stopping choreography (originally from Jerome Robbins – produced today by his former protégé, choreographer Joey McKneely). This award-winning production tells the tale of two star-crossed lovers set in a late hot summer in the backyards of New York’s West Side. One of the most successful stage shows of all time, West Side Story is characterized by dueling dancing street gangs that sing, dance and snap their fingers so perfectly, howling police sirens, Puerto Rican girls’ whirling skirts on the city’s flat rooftops, everlasting love, and fateful conflict – all played out across the derelict backyards. The choreography and the score to West Side Story (score by Leonard Bernstein) complement each other so perfectly in this Broadway smash musical – it’s no wonder it has been continuously popular. The score features the well known songs Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America, I Feel Pretty – to name a few. Premiering on Broadway in 1957, West Side Story redefined the genre of the musical both musically and in terms of dance – and today it’s as daring, realistic and relevant as ever. Do not miss the exciting chance to see this quintessential piece of American theater history in Prague March 23 – 26, 2017.
