About the Show
West Side Story premiered in New York on September 26, 1957, and as the curtain fell on that debut performance the theatre goers sat in stunned silence. They didn’t quite know what to do with this musical that was tense, violent, sexy and dangerous, that had no overture and no happy ending. In a season that also premiered My Fair Lady and The Music Man, West Side Story was revolutionary.
WSS has been performed over a half a million times and has been translated into Serbo-Croatian, Turkish, mounted in Latvia and Lebanon, hailed in Johannesburg and Manila and Tel Aviv. And, for the first time in thirty years, by Mid-Columbia Musical Theatre.
