Best Theatre Shows: West Side Story Comes to Singapore!

PlayPost Category - PlayPlay

A boy. A girl. Two rival gangs. One fatal love affair.”

West Side Story has been described as ‘The No.1 Greatest Musical of all Time’ by The Times, UK. It’s easy to see why – with an intense love story, sensational choreography, and music that you won’t be able to stop humming along to!

Practically everyone grew up performing this hit at school, whether they were Maria, the lead character, or in the chorus as one of our team members here at Sassy Mama recalls.

West Side Story for me is the most memorable show. When I was 12 years old, my school staged a production of West Side Story.  Not good enough for a main part – I was fortunate to be selected for the chorus. I fell in love with the characters  – and was desperate to be Maria. The modern day story of Romeo and Juliet, the show is jam-packed full of recognisable ballads that we all know the words to.” Georgina Bullworthy, Partnerships Manager

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story is a gritty love story set amidst the rivalry of teenage gangs of the harsh upper west side in 1950s New York. The story line grabs you at the get go – two gangs battle to be top dog, a situation which heats up ten fold when a gang member falls in love with a rival’s sister.

Aside from the fantastic acting by the 32 cast members from the US – it’s the ground-breaking choreography of the show and the hit score that gets everyone’s hearts a flutter. This production showing here in Singapore is the only production currently showing the original choreography of Jerome Robbins. West Side Story was first produced at Broadway in 1957. It has been wowing audiences in theatres ever since, across over 20 countries and 100 cities.
