Pulled directly from the pages of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the musical takes place on New York's West Side in the mid-1950s amidst widespread racial and social tension. The show begins as a war is building between two rival gangs fighting over the same piece of turf: born and bred New York boys, The Jets, and Puerto Rican immigrants The Sharks. In the midst of the battlefield are two young romantics, good-boy Tony, a Jet ready to leave the gang life behind, and wide-eyed Maria, the sister of Sharks leader, Bernardo. When Tony and Maria unexpectedly meet and fall for one another, tension between the rival groups only escalates, leading to a bloody and senseless rumble that costs both sides young lives. In spite of the violence, the true story at the core of the show is two lovers trying to find a way to be together—and whether either can survive when hate and ignorance are unwilling to yield.

Over the course of our meetups, I've had a couple of people ask about holding them on the weekend so more people can attend. I'm happy to say that for West Side Story, I've been able to get a great deal on seats for Sunday Night June 9th! We have seats available on the main floor and tehy are priced at just $37 which is half off the regular price. Don't miss your chance to see this classic show back on stage. Remember that an RSVP on here does not guarantee you a seat to the show, you need to log on to www.EventUsher.com and use the password MEETUPTICKETS to purchase your seats. I'll send out details of where in the lobby we'll meet before the show as we get closer and I'm able to work that out with Clowes. I hope you all can join us for this great show!
If you have any questions, please feel free to call or e-mail me. Thanks Everyone :)
