"West Side Story," Dress Rehearsal 1 of 2, Priscilla Beach Theatre, Priscilla Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

The classic "West Side Story" opens this week for a fourteen performance sold-out run at Priscilla Beach Theatre (PBT).  PBT's quality leadership, venue, cast and production team has become consistent in attracting sell-out crowds!! And with good reason - these are very talented people performing very moving themes - it is a wonderful expression director Emily Maltby has fashioned for us to enjoy.

"West Side Story is one the most well known musicals and greatest love stories of all time. This is the modern day retelling of Romeo and Juliet. Leonard Bernstein and Steven Sondheim's score is considered one of the best ever written.

The original 1957 Broadway production, directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins and produced by Robert E. Griffith and Harold Prince, marked Sondheim's Broadway debut. It ran for 732 performances before going on tour."  (PBT)
